ISBE Budget Hearings

ISBE Budget Hearings: Give Your Input!

We have an opportunity to make our voices heard and advocate for increased funding to the Evidence-Based Funding Model. The Illinois State Board of Education has scheduled four hearings across Illinois to gather community input on the state’s budget for public education.

We hope you can attend one of the hearings and be an advocate for increased EBF because feedback and funding requests received will inform ISBE’s Fiscal Year 2021 public education budget recommendation. All individuals should submit their funding requests online using the Budget Hearing Funding Request Form, even if they are attending in person.
