Rauner school funding change 'supports every single child,' Tracy contends

Bruce Rauner issued an amendatory veto on a plan approved by the General Assembly. "As a result of this action, every school and student in IL would be treated fairly and equitably".

The layoffs call for 240 elementary school teachers and 116 high school teachers to be laid off.

After Rauner's veto on August 1, SB1 was sent back to the Legislature for reconsideration, but no vote has taken place as of Monday afternoon.

"The number of open teaching positions in CPS schools is far greater than the number of teachers involved in today's staffing changes, and we expect the majority of impacted teachers to find new full-time positions in district schools", district spokesman Michael Passman said in a statement. Rauner also moved to contain costs going forward, changing the hold-harmless provision to a per-pupil hold-harmless mandate after 2021 and removing the minimum funding requirement, she said. "Senate Bill 1, as originally passed, bails out the Chicago Public School system on the backs of downstate schools".

The veto removed funding for debt-ridden Chicago school pensions.

A total of 600 staff members who are school-based support personnel will also be laid off, CPS said-134 support personnel at elementary schools and 466 support personnel at high schools.

An email from Levett to staff obtained by Connect Savannah Tuesday morning confirmed that school will be canceled August 21. The forms can be downloaded , but each school should be able to provide parents those forms, the district said.


To get the funding in place, state lawmakers must vote to accept the amended measure or override it. Legislators must either pass or attempt an override of the bill by August 16 or else it is effectively scrapped.

"To ensure every child receives a high-quality education, we need a school funding formula that supports every single child in Illinois", Tracy said in the statement.

Labour described it as "shameful" - but the Government insisted it was misleading to suggest staff shortages were to blame. When a maternity unit imposes a divert, staff contact women in labour and tell them to go to another hospital.
