Merry Rhoades from Tueth Keeney Law Firm assisted in updating the “Illinois Council of School Attorneys’ Guide to Illinois Statutes Affecting Schools, which serves as a handy reference to those Illinois statures that are not in The School Code but but are occasionally involved in the resolution of issues faced by school districts. It references statutes in force as of Jan. 1, 2013. The guide was prepared by an ICSA committee as part of the ICSA’s continuing effort to disseminate legal information to its members and school officials.
