Good news! Lawmakers pass education budget.
Lawmakers in the Capitol approved a full Fiscal Year 2017 budget for elementary and secondary education, including a $361 million increase over FY 2016 levels. The budget provides funding for school districts that will fully cover the statutory foundation level of $6,119 per pupil and add another $250 million in equity grants directed at school districts with high concentration of poverty students. Mandated categorical grants will be funded at FY 2016 levels and early childhood education will see an increase of $75 million over FY 2016 levels.
According to numbers provided by the Illinois State Board of Education, District 153 should see an increase from FY16 to FY17 of approximately $552,400 in General State Aid. And although the foundation level remains frozen, we are not expecting funding to be prorated.
