School Funding 2018 Bertino Largest2SmallestPLAINFIELD - Public schools across the 49th State Senate District will receive more than $22 million in new money under Illinois’ school funding formula overhaul, an initiative supported by State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood).

The Illinois State Board of Education has started to issue vouchers to the state comptroller that clear the way for school districts around the state to begin receiving money under Illinois’ new evidence-based model of funding public schools.

The distribution – which is based on detailed enrollment figures, district-specific student learning needs, available local resources and 27 other elements– is the first step toward right-sizing state support for every school district. No schools will ever receive less state funding than they do today under the new plan.
