District 204 SB16 Informational Meetings

Last July, the Illinois Senate Education Funding Advisory Committee was tasked with recommending ways to improve public education funding in Illinois. The result of the task force was the creation of Senate Bill 16 (SB16). If enacted into law, SB16 will make sweeping changes in how the state funds education. 
The financial impact on our school district is significant. The district's budget will be reduced by $10.1 million over four years. This is a loss of 41 percent in state revenue. District 204 will have the third largest reduction in state funding among the 862 school districts in Illinois. The district is at the top of the list of DuPage County reductions.
District 204 invites community members to attend one of the following informational meetings to learn more about SB16 and the impact it will have on our district:
