You have inquired about whether the area that comprises Forest Park School District No.
9
( Territory ) can be converted into a unit school district. Section 11E-25
of
the
School Code
provides that any contiguous and compact territory that is not already part
of
a unit school district can be organized into a unit school district. The following is a description
of
the process for creating a unit school district.
I Petition Requirements
Pursuant to Section
llE 35
of
the
School Code
a petition has to be filed with the Regional Superintendent
of
Schools. Since the Office
of
the Cook County Regional Superintendent
of
Schools has been abolished, Section 2-3.62
of
the
School Code
provides that the Cook County Educational Service Centers shall perform the duties and responsibilities
of
the Regional Superintendent. The area
of
the Territory
is
under the jurisdiction
of
the West Suburban Cook Intermediate Service Center ( West Cook Service Center ). There are two ways to initiate a petition. The petition has
to
be signed by at least 50 voters
of
the Territory or it has to be approved by the Boards
of
Education
of
District No. 209 as well as that
of
your District. It is unlikely that the Board
of
Education
of
District No. 209 would approve a petition. The petition has to request that the question
of
forming a unit district be submitted to a referendum vote. The petition may, but does not have to, request that a school board be elected at the same election and/or request that the issuance
of
bonds also be voted upon at the election. The petition has
to
state the maximum tax rates for the new unit district and how assets and liabilities from District No. 209 will be allocated. The petition also has to name a committee
of
ten petitioners who can act on behalf
of
all
of
the petitioners.
