2017 Tax Levy Estimate

Posted: November 21, 2017

The District has received several inquiries regarding the recent ad published in the Edwardsville Intelligencer and The Telegraph regarding the 2017 tax levy extension estimate for the 2018-2019 school year. This publication, and the wording contained, is required by Illinois School Code when a taxing body’s total estimated levy dollar amount is greater than 5% of the extended amount from the prior year. For the 2017 levy (2018-2019 school year), the publication requirement was met due to the passage of the $0.55 Education Fund tax referendum in April 2017. The referendum increase becomes effective for the current tax cycle; it was not included on last year’s tax bills. The District is not proposing or requesting another Education Fund tax rate increase.

Illinois State Board of Education - 5Essentials Survey Update

Posted: November 15, 2017

The Illinois State Board of Education/5Essentials Survey team has notified us that due to a data upload error in the 5Essential Survey system, there will be a delay in the opening of this year’s 5Essential Survey administration window. Once we have been notified of the new date for the survey launch, we will communicate the information to you.

As a reminder, District 7 will be conducting its own survey in order to gather information on parent preferences for communications received from the District. This communications review is part of an ongoing effort to improve communication resources for parents and community members. The District will also delay our parent communication survey so that both surveys can be taken within the same time frame. Parents will be emailed a link to the survey when it opens.
