Summer School Funded

DANVILLE -- Good news for students in Danville as District 118 is receiving enough funding to offer elementary summer school.

School officials report Title 1 funding from the federal government will be enough to cover the cost.

Weeks ago the district was unsure how much it would receive so the board was prepared to cut the program if funds did not become available.

State funding has been unreliable according to officials so the board was not willing to gamble on not having enough money to pull from but now it is no longer an issue.

The Title 1 grant money comes from the federal government but is administered by the state.

District officials say summer school information will be going out to parents shortly but if you have questions about your child you can contact their teacher.
