1:10 School District Legal Status

Written by Tim Farquer on Monday, 11 July 2016. Posted in Section 1 - School District Organization

The Illinois Constitution requires the State to provide for an efficient system of high quality public educational institutions and services in order to achieve the educational development of all persons to the limits of their capabilities.

The General Assembly has implemented this mandate through the creation of school districts. The District is governed by the laws for school districts serving a resident population of not fewer than 1,000 and not more than 500,000.

The School Board constitutes a body corporate that possesses all the usual powers of a corporation for public purposes, and in that name may sue and be sued, purchase, hold and sell personal property and real estate, and enter into such obligations as are authorized by law.

LEGAL REF.:  Ill. Constitution, Art. X, Sec. 1.105 ILCS 5/10-1 etseq.

CROSS REF.:   2:10 (School District Governance), 2:20 (Powers and Duties of the School Board; Indemnification)

1:20 District Organization, Operations, and Cooperative Agreements

Written by Tim Farquer on Monday, 11 July 2016. Posted in Section 1 - School District Organization

The district is organized and operated as follows:

The School Board believes that the Williamsfield School District should be organized around a pattern that will give all students innovative opportunities to succeed. The Board further recognizes that no educational organization should be so solidified that new organizational patterns are difficult to implement as educational research gives us greater insights into how children learn.

 

The current organizational structure of the district includes three levels of instruction: elementary school, middle school, and high school. The elementary school provides self-contained classrooms for students in preschool (1/2 day) and Kindergarten through grade 5 (grade 5 is elementary but not self-contained). The middle school consists of grades 6-8. The high schools includes grades 9 through 12.

 

The District enters into and participates in joint programs and intergovernmental agreements with units of local government and other school districts in order to jointly provide services and activities in a manner that increases flexibility, scope of service opportunities, cost reductions, and/or otherwise benefit the District and the community. The Superintendent shall manage these activities to the extent the program or agreement requires the District’s participation, and shall provide periodic implementation or operational data and/or reports to the School Board concerning these programs and agreement. The District participates in the following joint programs and intergovernmental agreements:

 

      Knox-Warren Special Education District (KWSED)

      Delabar CTE System

      Mid-County Athletic Cooperative

      ROWVA-Williamsfield Athletic Cooperative

 

 

LEGAL REF.:  Ill. Constitution, Art. VII, Sec. 10.5 ILCS 220/1 et seq.
