Illinois Budget

For almost two years, Illinois has operated with just a partial budget for education and a “stopgap” budget for most everything else.  This has led to cuts at local government entities, community service organizations and education agencies that support our families and communities.  Even though education has been funded, schools and students still suffer due to the lack of certainty, inequitable funding and current unpaid bills from the state.  Let’s work together to #PassILBudget.

More than 380 Illinois school district superintendents, representing 1.3 million students, have signed on to support a grassroots statewide initiative called, simply enough, “Pass Illinois’ Budget!” We hope you will support this effort.  Write your legislator (see below) and ask him to pass a budget now, to fix the state funding formula for K-12 schools to make it more equitable, and to pay districts what they’re owed.
