Marquardt School District 15 News
A new public school funding bill recently passed by the Illinois Legislature, SB1947, includes a scholarship program that would award donated funds to students in lower-income families — up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level — to provide them the opportunity to attend private schools.
The recently passed public school funding measure, Senate Bill 1947, is slated to provide targeted property tax relief to certain sections of Illinois, including several school districts in DuPage County.
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has placed Marquardt School District 15 on its financial "Recognition" list.
Marquardt School District 15 has $13,273,694 in debt, which is $2,295 per household in the district, according to Illinois State Board of Education 2016 financial reports obtained by the DuPage Policy Journal.
DuPage County schools would be net losers of state funding under a bill that passed the Illinois State Senate Wednesday.
