Understanding Senate Bill 1

Posted:

WARRENSBURG, Ill (WAND)- Senate Bill 1 aims to reallocate state funding to school districts in need, but understanding the ins and outs of the bill can be difficult.

On Wednesday night, Fix the Formula Illinois hosted an informational session for all educators and parents in the area to attend. 

One teacher from Warrensburg-Latham district, Rebecca Wattleworth said, "by using this formula everybody is going to win, there's not one district in Illinois that's going to lose money which is the big thing we really need to be able to have that equitable funding system and by not losing, districts are going to be able to make plans for the future."

However, if the budget does not pass then the bill will be blocked as well.
