State Superintendent Can’t Say When, If Schools Will Get Money
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois’ state superintendent of schools says he’d like to think local schools across the state will get their new money from Illinois’ new school funding formula by the end of the school year. But he can’t guarantee anything. Superintendent Tony Smith yesterday told lawmakers that he can’t say that schools won’t be short changed or see a delay in getting their new tier money, or in getting reimbursed for school bus and special ed expenses. Smith also got a lecture from lawmakers for presenting a budget that he admits is ‘unrealistic’ and seven billion-dollars more than Illinois can afford.
