A letter was recently sent home to inform parents and community members of the financial situation the Elverado School District is facing. The board would like you to know we are not trying to cry wolf. These are dire times for the district, but you can be assured that we will scratch and fight to keep the district going. However, we want you to understand that the community by itself is unable to raise enough money annually to keep the district going. We must have funding support from the state. If you watch the news or pay attention to social media, you will have noticed many school districts throughout the state are facing the same financial crisis. When the new fiscal year starts on July 1st we will have a surplus. However, that surplus will not last very long and we will have to start borrowing money. Our best chance at succeeding is for voters here at home, and across the state, to reach out to elected officials to discuss concerns for K-12 education and the state budget. In order to make it easier, we have included links on the side of the page to contact Governor Rauner, Representative Bryant, and Senator Luechtefeld.
