Recent News

Public Hearing
The Board of Education of Jacksonville School District 117 will conduct a Public Hearing to receive public comment on a proposed waiver application of School Code 105 ILCS 5/17-1.5.  If approved, the waiver would allow the District to exceed the 5% Limitation in the Limitation of Administrative Costs Worksheet for FY19. This increase in administrative costs is due to a change in personnel in the District Office. No additional positions were created; however, one position was changed and it now affects a budget line which is included in the Limitation of Administrative Costs Worksheet.

The public hearing will be held at the Board Office, 211 W State St on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, at 7:00 pm.

This notification fulfills requirements of the ISBE process for waiver approval.
