Craig Lindvahl Appointed To Illinois State Board Of Education

The College of Arts and Sciences is divided into three groups Science and Mathematics (Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geography & Geology, Mathematics, Physics), Social Studies (Communication Science and Disorders, Economics, History, Politics and Government, Psychology, Social Function, Sociology and Anthropology), and Humanities (Communication, English, Language, Literatures, and Culture, and Philosophy). Colonial Life, a division of Unum (NYSE: UNM),has an instant opening for sales consultants and managers to join our increasing group in Lombard, IL. The ISBE SAC is meant to be a diverse group of students from across the state who have demonstrated a robust work ethic, the potential to believe creatively and perform properly in groups. In addition, he has worked on applications that pipeline talented personnel to Illinois.

The student members also choose a particular project to investigation and present before the State Board of Education at the finish of the college year. In Illinois, the regular approach for making a charter college contains a group presenting their proposal to a neighborhood College Board, and then permitting the School Board to vote either for or against permitting the charter school into the district. About a year and a half ago, more new legislation produced the State Charter Commission , which has seven members appointed by the governor.

Nevertheless, over a decade ago, when a charter school was denied in Woodland School District 50 and Fremont District 79 (in the Gurnee location), a new law permitted the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to overturn the neighborhood School Board’s selection. A second state charter school has been put into the Wealthy Township District 227 about two years ago, costing #227 multiple millions of dollars currently.

Not only did Woodland and Fremont have to allow Prairie Crossing Charter College (PCCS) to run in the district, but the financing formula stated that Woodland and Fremont had to fully pay for the charter college, using its basic state help (GSA) at a per capita cost. This procedure has no oversight or manage from regional School Boards, the ISBE, or the state legislature! We have been advised by the ISBE (Illinois College Board of Education) that this issue requires a legislative answer.

This is over $three million that any other college district in the state of Illinois gets to keep for its annual price range, but that Woodland have to somehow make up. In the time PCCS has existed, Woodland has lost some $27 million! This opens up the door to something from Virtual Charters to Home College Charters to drain what small State funding public schools receive.
