State Adopts Sangamon-Menard Regional Office Of Education, Rejects More Costly Option


Sangamon County taxpayers may have dodged a very expensive bullet. 

 

The State Board of Education has decided to proceed with the original plan to merge the Sangamon and Menard County regional offices of education, as part of an effort to cut the total number of R.O.E.’s from 44 to 35. 

 

An alternate plan surfaced this week that would have grouped Sangamon and Menard with three other West-Central Illinois counties.  Sangamon County regional superintendent Jeff Vose says under state mandates, the office’s budgetary impact on Sangamon County could have gone from $250,000 to double, or even triple that. 

 

The new Sangamon-Menard regional office will take effect in July 2015.
