Three Important Bills Affecting Public Education

Dr. Jacoby offers his perspective on three important pieces of legislation that will impact districts across Illinois. SB 28 (Bertino-Tarrant, D-Plainfield) would reinstate the five clock-hour provision. Current law gives school districts the flexibility to address the needs of students, and allows learning to be the main factor in determining a school day rather than the clock. House Bill 3053 (Mayfield, D-Waukegan)was approved by theHouse this week. It creates the School District Efficiency Commission and requires the commission to make recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly on the number of school districts in this State with the goal of reducing the number of school districts by 25 percent, the optimal amount of enrollment for a school district, and where reorganization and realignment of school districts would be beneficial in this State. The commission would consist of 20 members, and by a majority vote of its members, would have the ability to put consolidat...

Three Important Bills Affecting Public Education

The 5-Hour Classroom Mandate & District Consolidation Discussions - ALR 101-09

Senate Amendment 1 reinstates the five-hour classroom mandate but provides the flexibility many superintendents desired by carving out exemptions from the five clock hours requirement that includes: Students enrolled in dual credit. Participation in internships. Students participating in youth apprenticeships. Students participating in blended learning programs. Also in this episode, Senate Bill 1838 is yet another effort to consolidate school districts in Illinois. It isn't the first and won't be the last. The Alliance is opposed to this bill, but it's possible it will be viewed by many legislators as a more measured approach they could get behind. Stay tuned on this because negotiations will undoubtedly pick up steam.

Gov. Pritzker's Graduated Income Tax Plan & the Teacher Salary Bill - ALR 101-08

This week, the governor revealed a plan that would slightly lower the income tax rate for households making under $100,000 and keeps in place the current 4.95% income tax rate for households making between $100,000 and $250,000. The plan is estimated to provide a savings for 97% of tax payers and raise additional revenues of $3.4 billion per year. While the projected revenues would be a significant increase, to put it in perspective, earlier this year the Illinois State Board Education (ISBE) proposed an education budget increase of $7.2 billion to adequately fund all schools. For a more detailed breakdown, you can find Governor Pritzker’s planhere. Senate Bill 10 (Manar, D-Bunker Hill)was advanced to 3rd Reading in the Senate earlier this week.Across the rotunda, a House committee approved the same minimum teacher salary language inHB 2078 (Stuart, D-Collinsville).With bills moving in both chambers, it is important for school board members and administrators to reach out to Genera...
