District 88 shares important information regarding new school funding law

This past week has been a busy one in Springfield for education. On Aug. 31, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signed Senate Bill 1947, a new school funding law that looks to provide a comprehensive solution to the decades of inadequacy and inequity in education funding throughout Illinois. SB 1947 was approved by the Illinois House of Representatives on Aug. 28 (after initially failing) and was then passed by the Illinois Senate on Aug. 29. For details about SB 1947, go to http://tinyurl.com/yap5ww52.

We are thrilled to have a funding formula for public education in Illinois, and we appreciate the hard work and efforts of our local legislators to ensure a budget for our students. Below are highlights of the bill, provided by the Illinois Association of School Administrators Alliance Legislative report, and how it will impact District 88.

Impact of Senate Bill 6:

Our students – along with all students in Illinois – deserve adequate and equitable funds to provide a high-quality educational experience, and we’re hopeful SB 1947 will help accomplish that goal. We will continue to monitor and share updates regarding this and related legislation. If you have questions or thoughts, please feel free to contact me at shelton@dupage88.net or 630-530-3980.
