Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer joins more than 400 school chiefs from across the state, representing 1.35 million students, in calling for the Illinois General Assembly to immediately pass a state budget. The grassroots initiative - called “Pass Illinois’ Budget!” - also urges lawmakers and Governor Rauner to improve the state’s education funding formula, and pay school districts millions of dollars owed in unpaid bills this year.
While K-12 education has benefited from a partially-funded state budget, Illinois schools, students, families, and communities will continue to suffer without a full state budget. Districts will continue to struggle if “Mandated Categoricals,” state payments which support special education, bilingual education, transportation, and other important services, do not get paid this year. District 205 has not received three categorical payments this year. Here are the largest funds due:
State revenue accounts for about 8.13 percent of District 205’s operating budget or $9,341,790. The General State Aid payments, which support general operating expenses, are being paid on time, however, the categorical payments are not. District 205 has not received any categorical payments this year with the exception of one late quarter payment from last fiscal year.
The RevTrak Web Store is getting a makeover. This new mobile-friendly design will simplify end-user experience when making payments from any device. Visit the Web Store through any web browser on the device of your choosing – it’s that easy. In addition to the responsive design, the following features have been added:
The Elmhurst History Museum reminds second graders and their schools that the annual Ruth Strand Poster Contest will soon begin. Packets with contest information and entry forms will be sent to all District 205 second grade teachers during the first week of April. The 2017 deadline for poster entries is Friday, May 5, by 5:00 PM. Schools with ten or more participants will earn a $100 grant for the school’s library from the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation, so please be sure to take advantage of this special opportunity. For more information or to download entry forms, visit the History Museum’s website.
Winners and their families will be honored at a reception in the Elmhurst History Museum’s Education Center on Wednesday, May 24, at 4:00 PM. In addition, the contest winners will be invited to march in the Elmhurst Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 29 and be recognized by the City Council on Monday, June 5. Posters will be displayed at the museum throughout the summer months, and winning entries will be exhibited at Elmhurst City Hall.
