Action Still Needed to Oppose SB16
Senate Bill 16, the School Funding Report Act of 2014, passed the Illinois Senate in May and currently is pending in the House of Representatives.
District 153 urges you to take action to oppose this bill.
Homewood School District 153 stands to lose about $740,000 a year, which translates to a loss of 20% of our state education funds. Such a decrease would be especially hard to absorb after several years of prorated general state aid for education.The state's failure to provide adequate funding for education is the largest contributor to our school district's recent deficit spending. An additional loss in funding, as proposed by SB16, would further frustrate our efforts to provide a quality education to our children.
Please take a few minutes to learn more about SB16 and weigh in with your legislators.
