The Cary Grade School Board already lets the public see proposed teacher contracts before they are passed.
The Crystal Lake High District 155 School Board did not.
Now State Rep. David McSweeney proposes in House Bill 309 to require internet posting of such contracts for two days before a board vote is taken.
A synopsis of the legislation is below:
Amends the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act.
With regard to an agreement reached between the representatives of educational employees and an educational employer, provides that in addition to any approval action that has previously been ratified, the final language of the written contract must be approved by the governing board of the educational employer and posted on a publicly accessible website at least 48 hours prior to such approval.
The final language voted upon by District 155’s Board has not yet been released, although the contact was approved January 21st.
The summary released is here.
