The evidence-based school funding model was signed into law Thursday, August 31. ISBE immediately sent vouchers to the Comptroller's Office. The Comptroller issued a press release today that said, in part, "Just after midnight Thursday morning (September 7), Comptroller Susana Mendoza's office began transmitting $541 million in General State Aid to schools around the state. These are the funds that were supposed to go out on August 10th and 20th, but were delayed because the Governor vetoed the School Funding Bill.
The next payment of $264 million was scheduled to go out Friday, September 8 to cover the first September payment due Sunday, Sept. 10. That means a total of $805 million has been sent to schools.
