In public education, there
should not be “winners
and losers”
Consolidated High School District 230 and
its six partner school districts including
117, 118, 127, 135, 140 and 146 stand to
lose between $6.2 million $15.7 million in
state funding under the newly proposed
Senate Bill 1 School Funding Reform Act,
according to figures released by the Illinois
State Board of Education. The amount lost
is directly dependent on a proposed infusion
of between $500 million to $86 million in
new funds to support Senate Bill 1.
Combined the school districts represent the
eighth largest population in the state with
155,955 residents and serve nearly 25,000
The school districts continue joint efforts to
educate the community and local legislators
about the devastating impact this could have
on schools and the local community.
“Our work to protect the best interest of
our community is far from over,” said Nogal.
“The success of our partner schools is vital
to District 230. We will continue to work
collaboratively with our partner districts to
fight for our community.”

Call to Action
The District 230 School Board and Administration ask our
community to contact your elected officials and express your
concerns regarding Senate Bill 1. You can write a letter, send a fax
or make a phone call.
Key points to include:
• There should be no “losers” in public education. All students
deserve quality education but not at the expense of others.
• It is not fair that school districts like District 230 who have been
fiscally responsible should be punished by the new funding
• The State of Illinois needs to own up to its Constitutional
responsibility and take primary responsibility for funding
education. The state needs to prioritize education funding.

“District 230 remains vigilant in being
informed about the newly proposed
legislation, in assuring our students’ best
interests are represented in future discussions, and in keeping the community informed and involved,” said Nogal.
“You can be assured that our school board and administration will remain on top of this important legislation and
will continue to assure that District 230’s voice is heard.”
We believe that every child deserves access to high quality education that prepares
them for their future. However, we do not believe that improving education for
some should be at the expense of others.”
