Dear Friends and Colleagues,
LaSalle Elementary School District 122 is proud to be part of a community that values education, its children and its future. District 122 stands as a leader of academic progress due to an outstanding staff, exemplary schools, committed volunteer groups and devoted parents. We encourage all members of our community to take an active role in the education of our youth. This starts with a better understanding of our schools and our district, including our financial management.
The community values our responsible financial management and supports our efforts to do more with diminished funding. The difficult financial situation in Illinois has had a negative impact on the finances of LaSalle Elementary Schools. The state has reduced funding to the district by $500,000. The budget reflects this significant loss of funding. The result is a deficit of over one million dollars in the Education Fund. Fortunately, district reserves can cover the loss for this year. The board will be working to reduce expenditures this year. Unfortunately this may result in increasing class sizes and a reduction of programs the district is able to offer.

District 122 wants to continue to honor our community’s values and priorities as demonstrated through sound financial practices.
Daniel F. Marenda
