The preponderance of research on the effects of the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law, or PTELL, focused on the 6 counties in northeast Illinois and employs a quantitative methodology. This study examined the impact of PTELL on the school districts in the adopter counties of Central Illinois as perceived by individuals who occupied leadership positions in both individual schools and school districts. This research was conducted in the form of a collective case study that involved 6 districts that are located in 5 PTELL adopter counties. The districts selected represented the types of school districts found in Central Illinois: unit, elementary, and high school districts. The study found that school leaders in most of the participating districts could not claim any negative effects at the present time that were attributable to PTELL. Possible explanations for this finding were different for each of the districts. The study also concluded that PTELL was not an answer to the continuing unhappiness of the people of Illinois with the property tax. The study made several recommendations for future research on the impact of PTELL in school districts in Central Illinois.
