Finance Facts

District 58 is committed to providing high-quality education in a fiscally responsible manner. This commitment has earned District 58 the State’s highest financial rating, “Financial Recognition,” for 20 straight years. In addition, District 58’s Board of Education (pictured here) recently earned the 2022 School Board Governance Recognition from the Illinois Association of School Boards, an honor that less than 4% of Illinois school boards earned. This recognition is given to school boards that model behaviors that lead to excellence in local school governance in support of quality public education.
