IL-Superintendents Sue over Education Funding

The Illinois State Board of Education calculates schools should receive $7.2 billion statewide, based on a new funding formula passed by lawmakers last year.

Nokomis Community School District Superintendent Dr. Scott Doerr is one of more than 20 superintendents across the state suing Governor Rauner and the state, after only $350 million has been allocated for next school year.

Dr. Doerr said the new evidence-based funding model calculates the money needed to bring districts across the state up to common core standards.

“And that’s what we’re asking for, is to please fully fund education to meet guidelines that you, as the State of Illinois, have set for public school kids,” Dr. Doerr said.
