Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer joins more than 400 school chiefs from across the state, representing 1.35 million students, in calling for the Illinois General Assembly to immediately pass a state budget. The grassroots initiative - called “Pass Illinois’ Budget!” - also urges lawmakers and Governor Rauner to improve the state’s education funding formula, and pay school districts millions of dollars owed in unpaid bills this year.

As legislators return to Springfield following their spring break, school districts are using school marquees to share their frustration with the state budget crisis and taking to social media with a call to #PassILBudget. As of April 24, 2017, the state now owes District 205 $3,670,579 and has been operating without a full budget for the past 22 months.

“I stand with over 400 superintendents from across the state in a call for action,” said Dr. Moyer. “We need to end the impasse now and move forward with a budget that will serve the two million K-12 Illinois public school students who represent our future.”

The superintendents are calling on members of the Illinois General Assembly and the Governor to do the following:

  • Immediately, and with bipartisan support, end the state budget impasse.
  • Improve the state’s education funding formula and invest in students and schools, including higher education, throughout the state.
  • Pay school districts what they are owed this year.

While K-12 education has benefited from a partially-funded state budget, Illinois schools, students, families, and communities will continue to suffer without a full state budget. Districts will continue to struggle if “Mandated Categoricals,” state payments which support special education, bilingual education, transportation, and other important services, do not get paid this year. District 205 has not received three categorical payments this year. Here are the largest funds due:

  • Transportation -$990,078.06
  • Special Education - $2,616,602.18
  • State Free Lunch - $1,818.25
  • Driver’s Education - $22,080.28
  • Early Childhood - $40,000.00

State revenue accounts for about 8.13 percent of District 205’s operating budget or $9,341,790. The General State Aid payments, which support general operating expenses, are being paid on time, however, the categorical payments are not. District 205 has not received any categorical payments this year with the exception of one late quarter payment from last fiscal year.

"Because this money reimburses costs to existing programming, and because the majority of these services are required by law, the District will likely have to consider either spending down its fund balance, which is an unsustainable solution, or study options to reduce spending in other programming areas in which discretionary decisions are possible," noted Dr. Moyer.

More than 400 superintendents, representing 66 percent of Illinois’ public school students from Carbondale to Chicago to Rockford have joined the effort. Please see press release link below to view the list. Please also reference the Frequently Asked Questions document via the link below.

Please fill out this form to be entered into the Student Parking Lottery by April 28th at 3:00pm.

The Elmhurst District 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th -8th grade band and orchestra students and 6th – 8th grade choir students to continue with instrumental music instruction in June and July. Regular practice during the summer months is critically important for band and orchestra students to reinforce the concepts and skills that they have learned and practiced during the school year. Moreover, learning and playing music is an activity that should be enjoyed year ‘round.

  • The Summer Instrumental Music Program will run from June 12 through July 14. (No class on July 3 or 4.)

The testing window for the spring 2017 administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment in District 205 will begin on Monday, April 3 and continue through Friday, April 28. These state-required achievement tests in reading and mathematics are being given to all eligible students in grades 3 – 8. Your child’s school will share more specific information about when students will be tested within this window.

In addition to the PARCC assessment, state and federal regulations require each school to assess achievement in science for students in 5th grade, 8th
grade and high school biology. The Illinois Science Assessment will be administered in each school between Monday, March 13 and Friday, March 24. This assessment is approximately one hour in length and is aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards for Science.

We anticipate being able to share score reports in the fall. The complete results of these state tests will be also reported on the Illinois School Report Card in the fall. We will review state tests results, along with other information to help us improve our school program. If you have any questions about the administration of these assessments, please contact your child’s principal.

Per the Illinois Department of Public Health, any child entering the 12th grade shall show proof of having received 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine prior to entering the 12th grade.  The first dose shall have been received on or after the 10th birthday and the 2nd dose shall have been received on or after their 16th birthday, at least eight weeks after the first dose.  If the first dose is administered when the child is 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required.  This requirement also applies to children who transfer into Illiniois schools from other states or countries. 

During your child’s junior year, please discuss with your doctor if your student has received the two meningococcal conjugate vaccinations. Your student may have already received the two doses of the meningococcal conjugate vaccination, but it has not been specified on their immunization form.  If they have NOT received both doses, you are required to get this vaccination for your child.  The Dr. must provide the dates they were given, along with a doctor’s signature. You must provide the required proof of immunization to the York High School Health Office by May 15th, 2017 .  Without proof of this vaccination, your child will be excluded from school in the fall of 2017, as described in the school code of Illinois and per Elmhurst District 205 procedure.  Exclusion from school means that your child will not be able to attend any classes or participate in any athletic or extra-curricular activities until the required proof of vaccination is provided. 

 

Please download the letter below to have your physician's office complete the immunization documentation record and return it to York HS Health Office by May 15, 2017.
