ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The Rockford School District will be receiving more money from the State of Illinois than it was expecting.
The district will receive an extra $1.6 million this year.
A change in funding formulas led to the increase.
RPS plans to invest the money on improving student performance.
Taxpayers could also benefit, as the district says it wants to lower it’s tax levy from the $7.93 rate set in 2015, to $7.
