Education Finance Fact Book (Currently unavailable for updating)

To help community members untangle the technical jargon often used in talking about education funding, a unique Fact Book made its debut on the District 64 Web site at the October 10, 2006 Board of Education meeting (PDF).

Volunteers researched and created chapters to provide fact-based descriptions and explanations to address community issues and concerns about education finance. The goal is to provide a central, handy resource for all community members interested in learning more about how education finance works and how financial decisions affect the quality of education offered to students.

District 64 thanks the members of the Communications Subcommittee for the generous contribution of their time and expertise in bringing this unique Fact Book to life. Members include: Craig Elderkin, chairman; Lynne Farmer; Georg Luxton; Bobbie Pallasch; Kathy Hurley; Jerry Mulvihill; Jerry Kenney; Rich Brendza; and, Steve Senf.
