We talk again today with Vandalia Superintendent of Schools Rich Well about Senate Bill 231, which is a school funding reform plan currently in the Illinois Senate. Well says Vandalia Schools would make a financial gain with both this plan and the plan put out by Governor Bruce Rauner. But, Well says the SB231 plan would be the best for Vandalia.
And, while the Vandalia School District would gain funding under the plan from the Governor—many area districts would actually lose funding under the Governor’s plan. Senate Bill 231 is now expected to potentially come up for vote on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
