State Revamps Model of Funding Education
In a major shift from bills that were passed by the Senate, but not the House, in two prior years, SB 1947 provides that no school district will receive less than the amount of State funding “distributed” to it in the 2016-17 school year. This is called its Base Minimum Funding. Thus, School Districts 65 and 202 will each receive, as a minimum, the amount of funding that they received in the 2016-17 school year. Under the Illinois State Board of Education’s (ISBE’s) preliminary calculations, District 65’s Base Minimum Funding is about $8 mllion, and District 202’s is about $2.9 million.
