Making daily investments to empower children to become life-long learners and future leaders

Earlier this summer, the Governor and General Assembly passed an Education Budget for 2016-2017. This will ensure that school districts in Illinois will avoid the possibility of not opening in August, or opening for a shortened school day, or for only a portion of the school year. Lockport Elementary School District 91 (Milne Grove and Kelvin Grove Schools) is not as heavily reliant on state aid as some other districts in the state. Based on the current funding model, state funding comprises 7-13 percent of the district’s revenue. The Board of Education has carefully watched the financial issues impacting Illinois school districts over the past few years. We have maintained positive fund balances over the years and have made budgetary adjustments without negatively impacting student programming. We have utilized our grants and other funding options to ensure that we continue to offer our students a strong curriculum. The state is currently discussing possible new funding formulas for education in Illinois. The board of education and I will continue to stay informed and research the impact of any education funding bill being considered by legislators. As we look forward to the start of the 2016-2017 school year, we wish our recent retirees, Miss Sander, Ms. Sharp, Mrs. Slingerland, and Dr. Swayne much happiness as they enter their new phase of life. We also wish the best to Mrs. Flanagan and Miss Doyle and success to Mr. Mulvany in his new career. Please join us in welcoming several new staff members to Milne and Kelvin Grove: MORE...
