Illinois Compiled Statutes 110 ILCS 805 Public Community College Act. Section 5-3

    (110 ILCS 805/5-3) (from Ch. 122, par. 105-3)

    Sec. 5-3.

    Community college districts desiring to participate in the program authorized in Section 5-1 of this Act shall make a written application to the State Board on forms provided by such Board. The State Board may require the following information:

    (a) Description of present facilities and those planned for construction.

    (b) Present community college enrollment.

    (c) The projected enrollment over the next 5 years. However, no application shall be accepted unless such district contains 3 counties, or that portion of 3 counties not included in an existing community college district, or the projected enrollment shows more than 1,000 fulltime equivalent students within 5 years in districts outside the Chicago standard metropolitan area and more than 2,000 fulltime equivalent students in the Chicago standard metropolitan area, such area as defined by U.S. Bureau of Census.

    (d) Outline of community college curricula, including vocational and technical education, present and proposed.

    (e) District financial report including financing plans for district's share of costs.

    (f) Facts showing adequate standards for the physical plant, heating, lighting, ventilation, sanitation, safety, equipment and supplies, instruction and teaching, curricula, library, operation, maintenance, administration and supervision.

    (g) Survey of the existing community college or proposed community college service area and the proper location of the site in relation to the existing institutions of higher education offering pre-professional, occupational and technical training curricula. The factual survey must show the possible enrollment, assessed valuation, industrial, business, agricultural and other conditions reflecting educational needs in the area to be served; however, no community college will be authorized in any location which, on the basis of the evidence supplied by the factual survey, shall be deemed inadequate for the maintenance of desirable standards for the offering of basic subjects of general education, semiprofessional and technical curricula.

    (h) Such other information as the State Board may require.
