As many of you may have heard, the train wreck in K-12 education has been averted in typical Illinois Legislature fashion. K-12 education received a budget that will allow schools to operate normally in the coming year. I feel for the higher education and social service sectors for continuing to worry if the stop-gap is a band-aid, a drop in the bucket, or a bridge to real funding. We will continue to make prudent financial decisions and provide the best educational opportunities for our students. Thank you for your continued support of the VIT District.
