Dear Gillespie CUSD #7 Community,
The financial future of our school district hangs in the balance in the next few hours. The Illinois General Assembly continues to debate the passage of a state budget and thus funding for all public schools. It is critical a budget to help fund our school district is passed by midnight on Friday, June 30. Our legislative leaders need to hear from you that funding for our schools is important.
Please call Senator Manar (217-782-0228) and Representative Bourne (217-782-8071) and demand they do the right thing for our kids and vote for Senate Bill 6. CUSD #7 will only be able to stay open until approximately January 1, 2018, without any additional state funding.
Our kid’s education is at stake. Please call.
