State Asks Parents to Inform School on Military Duty

The Illinois State Board of Education is requiring school districts to report if a parent or guardian of a current student in the district is a member of the United States armed forces who is deployed or expects to be deployed to active duty during the school year.

As a parent/guardian it is your choice as per Section 22-70 of the School Code [105 ILCS 5/22-70] to inform the district if you are deployed or expect to be deployed to active duty during this school year. Please contact your child’s school if you choose to disclose this information.
