Illinois schools to receive millions to help with post-pandemic plans; breakdown by district


CHICAGO – Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced a multi-billion dollar plan to help with students’ return to the classroom after months of virtual and hybrid learning.

There is $7 billion in federal funding that is being made available for K-12 schools over a three-year period. The funding is part of the American Rescue Plan. During a Wednesday press conference, he said the funds will help boost resources both inside and outside the classroom.

“With these enormous new resources comes the great challenge that most districts have never had to face. How to avoid the last 12 months become the lost year for our students,” said Gov. Pritzker.

Each school district received the Learning Renewal Resource Guide, filled with ideas from experts and stakeholders to help school districts renew learning.

In addition to the guide, Illinois state education agencies also will focus on four major goals to support schools including high-impact tutoring and encouraging enrollment in both early childhood programs and higher education.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
