The Illinois State Board of Education released its School District Report Card and Data Set in October 2022. One metric it measures is per student spend by School District. Here are our local results:

|Roundout District 72||$32,607||

The chart below lists the total spend per pupil and the state rank of school directs in Illinois with at least 100 enrolled students:

Our community spends more per student than almost every other community in Illinois and the Country. With such high relative spending, we at Parents Care believe that it is our responsibility to hold our School Districts accountable for delivering corresponding academic performance for our students. Do you agree?
We've got the number crunchers working on analyzing the State Report Card data to evaluate how our Districts are performing relative to other Districts across the State and the North Shore.
