SPRINGFIELD, IL-(EFFINGHAM RADIO)-Checks for Illinois schools will soon be on their way.
The Illinois State Board of Education yesterday said it sent the order to the state’s comptroller to pay schools.
The new checks will be the first under Illinois’ new education funding formula.
Many schools will get more money and none will get less.
The first payments are due to be sent out next Tuesday.
