(Springfield, IL) — The threat of a September without schools has been used by all sides in the state budget battle, but a survey finds that some schools could open this fall without state funds. The Illinois Association of School Administrators found that on average schools districts could stay open for five months without state funding by completely using up their reserve funds. That’s not true in Chicago however where CEO Forrest Claypool says schools won’t open without state money.
