Illini West School Superintendent Kim Schilson sees a bumpy financial road for bus transportation in the district.
She said the district began this school year with $270,000 in transportation funds. A state transportation cut of 42 percent mean the district will use up $114,000 of that by the end of the current school year.
She said, “We'll still have a small surplus left in the transportation fund. But with the way transportation funding is going that will be gone next year.
