Temperature check on legislation for the new session: Take our survey!

IL Families for Public Schools wants to hear from you about which legislation you think is a top priority this session! There are a number of important bills already filed or about to be, and we want to know what you would like to see passed---and also what you’d like to help support.

You can read the list of bills here, and then take the survey to the right (or below if on a phone!) where you an indicate your level of interest in each bill on the list. (Not sure about a bill? You can skip to the next bill.) At the beginning of the survey you can also indicate if you are interested in volunteering to get more involved in working on any of these bills.

If you are having difficulties with this interface on your device, you can use this form instead. Questions? Let us know!

An Elected Representative School Board for Chicago - SB2497

This bill has passed multiple times in the House and Senate but has not come to concurrence to get to the Gov’s desk, meaning it’s been reintroduced and both chambers need to agree on the details and get it done. Chicago is the only district in IL with a mayoral appointed board.
