AURORA, Ill. – To help parents and community members better connect with their local schools and discuss the new fair education funding reform, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is hosting a Meet Your Superintendent Night on Thursday, Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. at the Aurora Library-Eola Road Branch, located at 555 S. Eola Road in Aurora.
“It’s important for families to know how the state will provide equitable funding for our schools and for parents and community members to have the opportunity to discuss issues and ask questions directly with local superintendents,” Kifowit said. “School districts rely on the majority of the local property tax bill and I think it is important for residents to be engaged with their school district leadership. This event brings people together to discuss what we can do to give our children every possible opportunity.”
Representative Kifowit will welcome Dr. Mark McDonald, superintendent of East Aurora School District 131; Dr. Karen Sullivan, superintendent of Indian Prairie School District 204; Dr. John Sparlin, superintendent of Community School District 308; and Sarah Hartwick, co-director of legislative affairs for the Illinois State Board of Education.
“There are many issues affecting our schools right now, both at the state level and at the local level,” Kifowit said. “Hearing directly from the parents and community members I represent helps me make the best decisions for our communities, and I know our local superintendents feel the same.”
As seating is limited at the library, those interested in attending the information session are encouraged to RSVP by calling Kifowit’s constituent service office at 630-585-1308 or by email at RSVP@ILDistrict84.com.
