Danville School District 118 will receive more than $2.1 million in new money through the education funding overhaul passed by the Senate last year. Local State Senator Scott Bennett said every school in Danville is a winner under this plan. He said this new money is a good first step in giving students, teachers and parents in Danville the equitable and fair funding level that they deserve.
The distribution is based on detailed enrollment figures, district-specific student learning needs, available local resources and other data. No schools in Danville will receive less state funding than they do today.
