(105 ILCS 5/14C-6) (from Ch. 122, par. 14C-6)
Sec. 14C-6. Placement of children. Children enrolled in a program of transitional bilingual education whenever possible shall be placed in classes with children of approximately the same age and level of educational attainment. If children of different age groups or educational levels are combined, the school district so combining shall ensure that the instruction given each child is appropriate to his or her level of educational attainment and the school districts shall keep adequate records of the educational level and progress of each child enrolled in a program. The maximum student-teacher ratio shall be set by the State Board and shall reflect the special educational needs of children enrolled in programs in transitional bilingual education. Programs in transitional bilingual education shall, whenever feasible, be located in the regular public schools of the district rather than separate facilities.
