Certain school boards; school buildings; assessment; compliance. Requires any local school board in a local school division that (i) is under a division-level corrective action plan, (ii) contains any school that is under a corrective action plan, or (iii) receives at-risk add-on payments pursuant to the general appropriation act to annually assess each school building in the local school division for compliance with the Board of Education's minimum standards for school buildings and report the results to the Board. The bill requires, in any case of noncompliance with such standards, such report to include an assessment of the extent to which local funds are available to remedy such noncompliance. The bill provides that when the Board determines, on the basis of any such report, that a local governing body has not provided the local school board sufficient funds to ensure compliance with the minimum standards for school buildings, the Board may petition the relevant circuit court to compel the local governing body to provide such funds to the local school board.
