Local School Superintendents React to Signing of School Funding Compromise Bill

Pana School District Superintendent Jason Bauer says he and his school superintendent counterparts are breathing a huge sigh of relief.



Darrell Gordon, the superintendent of the Cowden-Herrick School District, says his district’s plan was to borrow money if necessary, which isn’t ideal.



In Nokomis, superintendent Dr. Scott Doerr says his district can finally plan for the future of the district, and worry about the quality of education rather than how much money will come in.
