Welcome to Regional Office of Education #40
Signed into law on August 31, 2018, Public Act 100-0465, also known as the Evidence-Based Funding for Student Success Act, made sweeping changes to education funding in Illinois. In making changes to state financial support to schools, the Act also repealed Section 18-8.05 of the School Code, which required an instructional day to be a minimum of five hours. As such, there is no current statutory minimum number of hours or minutes that constitutes an instructional day. This change provides districts with maximum flexibility to ensure that student needs determine the method and timelines of instructional days rather than the needs of regulatory and compliance systems.
The definition of an Instructional Day is explained in this memo from ISBE: https://www.isbe.net/Documents/Instructional-Day-Memorandum.pdf
