There’s still no deal to payIllinois’ regional superintendents and their staff what they’re owed, and the issue is getting more attention now that students are heading back to school. Bob Daiber, Madison County Regional Superintendent and president of the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents, says regional superintendents have to sign permits and other documents before school starts.
He says two have walked off the job, one inMcHenryCountyand the other in the Bond-Fayette-Effingham county office.
Daiber says the governor's office is still crafting legislation to pay the superintendents through the "private personal property replacement tax," a local funding source. The office is yet to find a sponsor, and Daiber says it's unclear how the legislature will react to the measure.
