District 85 excited about new state funding law, passes budget

Shiloh District 85SHILOH – Shiloh District 85 is thrilled with the new Senate Bill 1947 that recently passed in Springfield. The district, which has been in dire financial straits, is glad to know that they will be getting definite money from the state.

Board Member Phil Brunner mentioned that Superintendent Dale Sauer gave an overview of the bill at the finance committee meeting on September 6.

“It’s a pretty complex school funding reform, and we don’t fully understand what the implications are going to be but the good news is that under the new bill, no district is supposed to get less money than they did last year, so that’s encouraging, and we feel that we’re in a much better spot than we were at this time last year,” Brunner said.
