Greetings Families & Friends of Medinah District #11, 

Medinah School District 11 stands to lose $472,588 (81%) of state educational funds due to the School Funding Reform Act of 2014, also known as SB16.  This has already passed the Illinois Senate in May 2014.  I urge you to contact your local legislator, Dennis M. Reboletti at to express your concern on this potential loss in education funds.  SB16 is currently being reviewed in the House and will possibly be voted on in November.

Last July, the Illinois Senate Education Funding Advisory Committee was tasked with recommending ways to improve public education funding in Illinois, which has remained unchanged since 1997.







Dr. John K. Butts, Superintendent
