Area School Districts Would See Increased State Funding Under Plan

Springfield, IL-(ENEWSPF)- A plan to increase state funding for area school districts passed the Senate today with support from State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights).

“Illinois’ school funding formula hasn’t been updated in decades,” Hutchinson said. “The proposal I supported today would target more state resources to the schools that need it the most.”

Senate Bill 231 would update Illinois’ current method of funding school districts by targeting state monies based on a Weighted Foundation Level tied to characteristics of each school district, including low-income pupil count, the number of English language learners and special education . . .
