Sente Updates Constituents at Town Hall Meeting Focused on Education

06/22/2017

“It was reassuring to see so many residents interested in what is happening in Springfield as it relates to their children’s education here at home,” Sente said. “The recently-passed legislation not only helps local schools continue to provide our students with a world-class education, but has created an opportunity for our community to discuss how the state can serve as a stronger partner in our children’s academic success.”

Sente recently voted for Senate Bill 1, which through a new school funding formula would increase state funding to local schools by over $700,000. Unlike previous education proposals, the legislation ensures that no school in Illinois would lose money as a result of the new school funding formula. The legislation has passed both the House and Senate.
