Under the Private Business and Vocational Schools Act of 2012, all private businesses and vocational schools in the State of Illinois must furnish a surety bond in order to maintain a permit of approval.

The purpose of the surety bond is to secure the compliance of the permittee to the aforementioned Act.
The surety bond will also be used to provide financial compensation to the student, enrollee, the parents, or guardians if the private business or vocational school fails to fulfill its obligations or has ceased its operation.
What is the Private Business and Vocational School Bond amount?
