Illini West High School students will pay $100 to take Drivers Education classes next school year. The fess will double to make up for part of a state cut to the program.
Superintendent Kim Schilson says the district received $20,000 less from the state for the program than it expected.
She says, “It'll help somewhat. (The) shortfall in Drivers Ed is massive. There was a cut in the general budget on the Drivers Ed next year so the funding's going down.”
The district will also raise the district registration fee for all students from $110 to $125.
