Separate 204 draft budget

At the Indian Prairie School District 204 board meeting Monday night, school affairs officer Matt Shipley presented a draft budget for the upcoming school year. The three main priorities of the new budget are to reduce class sizes in Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2, increase funding for student mental health resources and special education teachers, and allocate $16 million dollars of funding available for capital projects in the district. The proposed budget also includes a planned $3 million increase in investment income and a $300,000 increase for the purchase of new driver education vehicles, as an agreement with Toyota of Naperville to provide vehicles franchise for the program is no longer viable due to market shortages.

District 203 Vehicle Purchase

Naperville School District 203 also needs cars for its driver training program, as Toyota of Naperville is ending its partnership there as well. Previously, six vehicles were supplied each year, but the dealership said it could no longer support this arrangement due to economic factors. In response, the District 203 School Board on Monday approved up to $350,000 in spending to purchase six vehicles for driver training programs at Naperville Central and Naperville North high schools.
