Holding: 
Affirmed.
Plaintiffs filed for declaratory and injunctive relief, alleging that school district wrongfully terminated their employment as teachers. Court properly granted summary judgment for school district, which had given RIF dismissal notices to many teachers, some of whom were offered vacant positions, as they had recall rights under the School Code, after District received notice of its funding and could determine student enrollment. Court properly interpreted Section 24-12 of School Code as containing due process procedures for RIF dismissals of teachers. (SCHMIDT, concurring; WRIGHT, dissenting.)
