Description: 
Mr. Thorson - IASB Delegate
There are two meaningful things noted by IASB since the last Board Meeting:

1. Notice that additional $350M will be included in the budget for the Evidence-Based Funding Model.

Legislative and Executive Branch Signal Support of $350 Million Funding Increase

Earlier this year, Governor JB Pritzker (D-Chicago) had suggested that due to difficult budget scenarios that Illinois should not place an additional $350 million in the Evidence-Based Funding Model. However, with a better than projected revenue picture and a clear indication from the legislative branch that they would be sending a budget with the additional education funding to his desk, Governor Pritzker announced his support for the additional funding. Last year, in the early stages of the global pandemic, the Illinois General Assembly passed a budget that did not provide the annual increase for evidence-based funding putting Illinois further behind on the pursuit of equity and adequacy. IASB supports the continued commitment to the Evidence-Based Funding Model and will continue to advocate for the allocation of resources to address the educational needs of Illinois’ public schools.


2. A potential bill that would allow a teacher to walkout of a class without notice, based upon their personal opinion of the classroom's safety. This, if passed, would impact staffing and substitute teacher allocation.
 

Teacher Walk-Out Bill Passes Senate Committee

Senate Bill 1204 (Holmes, D-Aurora) would allow teachers to abandon their classrooms without recourse if the individual teacher deems the situation "abnormally dangerous." According to the sponsor, SB 1204 is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the bill would apply after the current global pandemic. Currently, under Illinois law, unions are allowed to bargain over workplace conditions. SB 1204 takes that collective bargaining right and makes it an individual decision that does not get negotiated with the school board and could cause school-wide disruption of in-person education.
