The following information is provided: a list of requirements for the elimination and prevention of school segregation and racial discrimination under Illinois' School Code; a model for local districts to use in implementing desegregation; a framework for the investigative and hearing process to be conducted by the State Board of Education, either upon receipt of a complaint alleging discrimination or when the Board has reason to believe such discrimination may exist; and a list of services provided by the State to help local schools with desegregation activities. Appended is a statement (issued in November 1982) by Edward Copeland, then-Chairman of the State Board of Education, regarding desegregation progress and the role of the State Board. (CMG)
