6:30 PM Board of Education Meeting
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM College Bound Peoria
The Peoria Public School District 150 Board of Education approved the District’s Fiscal Year 2015 budget at its meeting on September 22, 2014. Like many Districts across the State, we are being challenged by declining State and local revenues. That is why in early September, Superintendent Lathan joined a coalition of Districts and organizations working to reform the General State Aid formula. More than 120 school Superintendents have joined the coalition, along with numerous school boards, and business and community leaders, in an effort to make the formula more equitable. If the School Funding Reform Act of 2014 (SB16) was in place for the current fiscal year, a significant portion, $8.2 million, of the District's projected $11.5 million deficit would be eliminated. District 150 and other school districts across the State, with the State's most neediest students, are spending the least on their students. Parents and community members are encouraged to stand behind and offer your support to Senate Bill 16.
Special projects prepare students for the rigor of high school and college.
