Unthinkable budget scenario for schools not so far-fetched

 

Listed under Media Releases on the District, Superintendent page.

The Illinois State Board of Education has mandated that all students must participate in taking the PARCC statewide standardized test.

According to the Illinois State Board of Education and as directed to all Illinois Public Schools by the Illinois State Superintendent, students are not allowed to opt out of the exam.

Thank you for your cooperation regarding this matter and if you have any questions, please contact the Illinois State Board of Education at 217-782-4321.

On behalf of State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D., ISBE’s Public Information Division is sending the attached letter to parents announcing the start of the 2016 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment testing window. Please consider sharing this letter with your local school communities. A copy of the letter will also be posted in the Superintendent’s Corner at www.isbe.net.

ISBE has also developed two new fact sheets to explain changes to this year’s PARCC assessment administration. They are posted on ISBE’s Hot Topics page at www.isbe.net/hot-topics.htm

It is impossible not to notice the daily headlines in the local newspapers and media outlets dealing with the State’s budget crisis and the impact it is having on public schools in Central Illinois and all across the State. For Williamsville Schools, we are projected to lose close to another $600,000 in pro-rated General State Aid revenue this year, and that doesn’t count the millions we’ve not received from the State in revenue over the past several years. Moreover, future years will continue to be tight because of the State’s financial problems and it is apparent the State’s financial problems will not be solved in the near future. Let there be no mistake about it, this is going to continue to be a very lean time for our school district. This State’s financial problem is very real. It will take every cent and every cost savings measure to maintain our educational programs throughout these difficult times.

The 2016-2017 School Calendar is available under the WCUSD15 main menu and Calendar sub-menu.

Did you know that each year there are students in our own district that want to be a part of our successful band program, but cannot afford to purchase or rent their first instrument? This is a way that our community can help.
