State Funding of Schools Crisis

Dear Parents and Community Members, As we approach the beginning of the 2017-18 school year, I wanted to welcome you and your students to the Midland School District. The administration, faculty and staff are excited to begin a new school year. We have some new faculty and a new building this school year. Despite the late start to the year, our students are set to receive a wonderful experience. Despite the level of excitement, I want to share some of my thoughts about the school funding crisis in Illinois. I am sure you have heard details on the news. Political gridlock holds our state, our schools and ultimately our children hostage. I have avoided sharing many details about the funding issue, because I was relatively sure the state government would find a solution. Afterall, it’s about funding students. How could they not? Well, as of Thursday, August 10th, the state has failed to live up to its obligation. The political battle has cost all public schools and children their General State Aid payments (GSA). The Midland School District relies on these payments to provide services to the children. ... Please read the whole letter, attached to this post.

Thank You!
