School Funding Task Force

State Goal

To provide a safe and healthy learning environment for all students.

Background

The Illinois governor established a school funding task force to examine how the state funds public education. The new commission had its first meeting on August 3, 2016. The governor has given the group until February 2017 to come up with recommendations that could be incorporated into the state’s fiscal year 2018 budget, and take effect at the start of the 2017–18 academic year (Pritchard, 2016). MWCC will partner with ISBE to provide supports to the task force in documenting decisions and synthesizing discussion from task force meetings.

Activities

MWCC, in collaboration with ISBE, will focus on supporting the task force in documenting decisions and synthesizing the discussion from task force meetings.
