VIDEO: Why the budget impasse continues and how board members can stay involved

The Illinois Association of School Board's Zach Messersmith sat down with Deputy Executive Director Ben Schwarm in the Illinois Senate chambers this week to review possible scenarios that could put an end to the budget impasse.

Schwarm outlined budget possibilities, what a final compromise might include, and how the components may impact school districts. He also discussed what school board members can do to stay involved, including contacting their local legislators and communicating with their community about the consequences if an education budget is not enacted.
