Take Action: Tell Your Representative to Support Funding for Statewide Family Engagement Centers in FY22
Now, more than at any other time, families are critical and primary to the success of their children. Congress must continue to recognize the important role of parents and families in a child’s education and support the Statewide Family Engagement Centers program. The best way to make your voice heard is by contacting your Representative today. It takes just a minute and will make a big impact. The deadline for your Representative to sign onto the SFEC letter is April 22nd!
Please take 3-4 minutes to send a letter to your legislators to urge them to prioritize our children in the FY22 state budget. Click on the link below to go to a prepared letter that you can use as is or customize it to include your own reasons for supporting Evidence-Based Funding (EBF) Formula for education.
The Illinois General Assembly is debating next year’s state budget now through the end of May. When the EBF formula was passed in 2017, the legislature committed to providing an additional $350 million dollars to the formula annually for at least ten years.
That commitment was broken last year when no additional funding was added to the formula. This year the governor has again proposed no additional funds for EBF. This is not acceptable for our children, their futures, and the future of Illinois.
The EBF formula is working. But, by not providing the promised additional funding, Illinois schools will fall further behind and that's not fair to our children.
Our children need your voice, send your letters today!

Save the date!!

The 2020-2021 PTA Reflections Program theme has been announced and is: "I Matter Because....".
What a perfect theme for this challenging time. All students at Blackwell are encouraged to start thinking about their original works of art inspired by the theme. Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.
Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme.
