State of the Schools 2013Families Learning Together

Each year, School District 21 hosts State of the Schools events for parents and community members. For the second consecutive year, State of the Schools provided students and parents an opportunity to learn together--this year by participating in a choice of fun and real learning activities based on actual standards.

Three successful State of the Schools events were held at School District 21 middle schools and hundreds of students and parents attended.

Board approves Local School Funding Resolution
Board member Phil Pritzker presented a resolution (based on this model from the Illinois Association of School Boards) about education funding and the number and scope of unfunded mandates statewide. The Illinois General Assembly could be making significant decisions over the coming weeks and months to restructure the funding formula for all schools statewide.Since 2009, state General Revenue Funds for education have decreased $715 million, and could drop by nearly another $1 billion in the coming year.

Community Consolidated School District 21 urges the Illinois General Assembly to take immediate action to prioritize funding for education and to identify stable, predictable, reliable revenue sources for school funding while also eliminating unfunded mandates that draw resources away from helping students learn more and more deeply.
