PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA) Happenings:
Senate Bill 16 (SB16) is a school funding bill currently in our Illinois House of Representatives. Our school district has found it important enough to issue its own statement of how it would impact us here in AHSD25. A $3.4 million reduction in state funding over 4 years, and then every year thereafter. For more detailed information go to https://ivyhillpta.wordpress.com/ or to the Ivy Hill PTA Facebook Page.
