Amends the School Code and the Illinois Vehicle Code. Removes a provision in the School Code that allows a school district to transport not more than 15 students to and from an interscholastic athletic or other interscholastic or school-sponsored activity in a van. Provides instead that a school district transporting students in grade 12 or below for an interscholastic, interscholastic athletic, or school-sponsored, noncurriculum-related activity that (i) does not require student participation as part of the educational services of the district and (ii) is not associated with the students' regular class-for-credit schedule or required 5 clock hours of instruction shall transport the students only in a school bus, a vehicle manufactured to transport not more than 10 persons, including the driver, or a multifunction school-activity bus manufactured to transport not more than 15 persons, including the driver; allows for a depreciation allowance claim. In the Illinois Vehicle Code, makes changes with regard to the definition of "school bus" and the requirement that every student enrolled in grade 12 or below in a public or private nursery, primary, or secondary school be transported in specified types of vehicles for certain activities. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective July 1, 2010.
