Sente to Hold Education Town Hall in Buffalo Grove


“Our children, our teachers and our community deserve only the best, which is why advocating to improve Illinois schools is one of my top priorities,” Sente said. “I look forward to providing local families with an update and hearing their feedback on the new education funding legislation, efforts to end the budget impasse and other initiatives from the spring legislative session.”

Sente recently voted for Senate Bill 1, which through a new school funding formula, would provide over $700,000 in additional state money to local schools if signed into law. Unlike previous education proposals, the legislation ensures that no schools in Illinois would lose money as a result of the new school funding formula.

What: Education Funding and Budget Town Hall

Who: State Rep. Carol Sente; State Rep. Will Davis, Chairman, House Appropriations-Elementary & Secondary Education Committee; Brent Clark, Executive Director, Illinois Association of School Administrators; Jessica Handy, Government Affairs Director, Stand for Children; Prentiss Lea, Superintendent, Community High School District 128; and Michael Lubelfeld, Superintendent, District 109

When: Tuesday June 20, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
