Update: Deadline for submission of
foster care student transportation
procedures delayed until June

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has changed the deadline for districts to submit foster care student transportation procedures to June 30, 2017 (previously Jan. 16). To assist with developing and implementing the new procedures, ISBE released an FAQ on the subject. Additional resources, including sample procedures and an interactive webinar, are currently under development and expected to be available in the coming weeks.
