In the past, adequacy and equity have always been measured within a state by school district. Under ESSA, however, states must start reporting per-pupil expenditures for every local educational agency and school in the state on annual report cards. That fact raises the bar for school districts and especially for school business officials. Are there disparities in the way that funds are distributed within a district? Are they equitable and adequate for each school? What are the implications for allocating funds to individual schools? What impact may disparities have on school performance? This session will take a first look at the site-based per pupil expenditures reported on the Illinois report cards for the 2018/19 fiscal year. (LIVE)

Developing and sustaining a strong professional network of school business peers and allied professionals serving the education community enabled me to learn about an 11th-hour amendment to Ohio's state budget bill that could have cost the Orange City School District as much as $6 million a year in property tax revenue if enacted into law. My professional network served as an early warning system to this potentially devastating reality. This allowed me to put out a call to action to engage my Board of Education, superintendent, local public officials, and community members. As a result, we had 36 precious hours to secure a veto of this secretive budget bill amendment by the Governor of Ohio. (LIVE)
