Like school systems across the state, Flossmoor District 161 is in watch and wait mode as the Illinois General Assembly and Gov. Bruce Rauner wrangle over education funding legislation.
“We’re good, but…” stated Frances LaBella, assistant superintendent of business operations, during Monday’s school board meeting.
While there’s no question that school will start on time, LaBella explained that the district has a large stake in the outcome of the school funding debate.
LaBella said the plan advocated by Rauner would result in an additional $900,000 for Flossmoor schools compared . . .
