  • Illinois Evidence-Based Funding Formula Five-Year Evaluation


  • The Evidence-Based Funding for Student Success Act charged the Professional Review Panel (PRP) with quintennial review of the entire Evidence-Based Funding model, including an assessment of whether or not the formula is achieving State goals (105 ILCS 5/18-8.15(i)). Generally, this evaluative study has found that EBF is successfully targeting funding to the highest-needs districts per the formula and that it is equitably providing state funding to schools with greater proportions of low-income students and students of color and low levels of property wealth. However, geographic disparities in average Percent of Adequacy as well as large gaps to adequacy remain and are greater for students from low-income households than their wealthier peers; such gaps also are larger for students of color than for their White peers.
