State Board of Education reports School Financial Profiles

Each year the Illinois State Board of Education completes an analysis of the fiscal condition of each school district in IL using a variety of criteria that is picked up from each year’s annual audit review.  Due to the continual decrease in proportional share of State Funding you can see that District 228 has moved from the highest level of financial rating to the second of four tiers.  Here is the ISBE FInancial Profile Page for more of the information from the State.  Even though many folks in Springfield want to tout that PK-12 schools were funded without a budget this year, it has been a pro-rated distribution and we are still owed more than $1.2M.  Many citizens of Illinois have lost optimism that schools will be funded at all for 2018 with state dollars.
