AN ACT concerning education.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
Section 5. The School Code is amended by changing Section
3-2.5 as follows:
(105 ILCS 5/3-2.5)
Sec. 3-2.5. Salaries.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, the
regional superintendents of schools shall receive for their
services an annual salary according to the population, as
determined by the last preceding federal census, of the region
they serve, as set out in the following schedule:
SALARIES OF REGIONAL SUPERINTENDENTS OF
SCHOOLS
POPULATION OF REGION ANNUAL SALARY
61,000 to 99,999 $78,000
100,000 to 999,999 $81,500
1,000,000 and over $83,500
The changes made by Public Act 86-98 in the annual salary
that the regional superintendents of schools shall receive for
their services shall apply to the annual salary received by the
regional superintendents of schools during each of their
elected terms of office that commence after July 26, 1989 and
before the first Monday of August, 1995.
The changes made by Public Act 89-225 in the annual salary
that regional superintendents of schools shall receive for
their services shall apply to the annual salary received by the
regional superintendents of schools during their elected terms
of office that commence after August 4, 1995 and end on August
1, 1999.
The changes made by this amendatory Act of the 91st General
Assembly in the annual salary that the regional superintendents
of schools shall receive for their services shall apply to the
annual salary received by the regional superintendents of
schools during each of their elected terms of office that
commence on or after August 2, 1999.
Beginning July 1, 2000, the salary that the regional
superintendent of schools receives for his or her services
shall be adjusted annually to reflect the percentage increase,
if any, in the most recent Consumer Price Index, as defined and
officially reported by the United States Department of Labor,
Bureau of Labor Statistics, except that no annual increment may
exceed 2.9%. If the percentage of change in the Consumer Price
Index is a percentage decrease, the salary that the regional
superintendent of schools receives shall not be adjusted for
that year.
When regional superintendents are authorized by the School
Code to appoint assistant regional superintendents, the
assistant regional superintendent shall receive an annual
salary based on his or her qualifications and computed as a
percentage of the salary of the regional superintendent to whom
he or she is assistant, as set out in the following schedule:
SALARIES OF ASSISTANT REGIONAL
SUPERINTENDENTS
QUALIFICATIONS OF PERCENTAGE OF SALARY
ASSISTANT REGIONAL OF REGIONAL
SUPERINTENDENT SUPERINTENDENT
Bachelor's degree plus
State license valid
for supervising. 75%
Master's degree plus
State license valid
for supervising. 90%
However, in any region in which the appointment of more
than one assistant regional superintendent is authorized,
whether by Section 3-15.10 of this Code or otherwise, not more
than one assistant may be compensated at the 90% rate and any
other assistant shall be paid at not exceeding the 75% rate, in
each case depending on the qualifications of the assistant.
The salaries provided in this Section plus an amount for
other employment-related compensation or benefits for regional
superintendents and assistant regional superintendents are
payable monthly by the State Board of Education out of the
Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund through a specific
appropriation to that effect in the State Board of Education
budget. The State Comptroller in making his or her warrant to
any county for the amount due it from the Personal Property Tax
Replacement Fund shall deduct from it the several amounts for
which warrants have been issued to the regional superintendent,
and any assistant regional superintendent, of the educational
service region encompassing the county since the preceding
apportionment from the Personal Property Tax Replacement Fund.
County boards may provide for additional compensation for
the regional superintendent or the assistant regional
superintendents, or for each of them, to be paid quarterly from
the county treasury.
(b) (Blank). Upon abolition of the office of regional
superintendent of schools in educational service regions
containing 2,000,000 or more inhabitants as provided in Section
3-0.01 of this Code, the funds provided under subsection (a) of
this Section shall continue to be appropriated and reallocated,
as provided for pursuant to subsection (b) of Section 3-0.01 of
this Code, to the educational service centers established
pursuant to Section 2-3.62 of this Code for an educational
service region containing 2,000,000 or more inhabitants.
(c) If the State pays all or any portion of the employee
contributions required under Section 16-152 of the Illinois
Pension Code for employees of the State Board of Education, it
shall also, subject to appropriation in the State Board of
Education budget for such payments to Regional Superintendents
and Assistant Regional Superintendents, pay the employee
contributions required of regional superintendents of schools
and assistant regional superintendents of schools on the same
basis, but excluding any contributions based on compensation
that is paid by the county rather than the State.
This subsection (c) applies to contributions based on
payments of salary earned after the effective date of this
amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly, except that in the
case of an elected regional superintendent of schools, this
subsection does not apply to contributions based on payments of
salary earned during a term of office that commenced before the
effective date of this amendatory Act.
(d) References to "regional superintendent" in this
Section shall also include the chief administrative officer of
the educational service centers established under Section
2-3.62 of this Code and serving that portion of a Class II
county school unit outside of a city with a population of
500,000 or more inhabitants. References to "assistant regional
superintendent" in this Section shall include one assistant
appointed by the chief administrative officer of the
educational service centers established under Section 2-3.62
of this Code and serving that portion of a Class II county
school unit outside of a city with a population of 500,000 or
more inhabitants. For the purposes of calculating regional
superintendent and assistant regional superintendent salaries
for educational service centers established under Section
2-3.62 of this Code, populations shall be established by
subtracting from the total county population the population of
a city with 500,000 or more inhabitants, divided by the number
of educational service centers in the county.
