Free Webinar Series: Unpacking the IL Ed Funding Bill: What SB 1947 Means to School Districts is hosting a free Webinar Series, “Unpacking the IL Ed Funding Bill:  What SB 1947 Means to School Districts” starting 9/19.  Each week, a new, pre-recorded webinar will be posted covering a portion of the new law.  Education attorneys from Tueth Keeney will host each webinar, providing expert explanation for Illinois school districts.

In addition to each webinar being available for viewing at any time within TeachIllinois, there is an open forum for attendees to pose questions and start discussions.  The 6 attorneys will often join the online discussion, culminating in a live webinar on November 6th where they will cover topics that came up within the online forum.
This is a one-of-a-kind event in Illinois, and a great opportunity for districts around the State to learn from experts on what the new law means to them and their particular situation.  The more people who join in the conversation, the richer the experience will be for everyone.  Please pass this information along to anyone who could benefit.
