Shelbyville, Vandalia, Effingham Among School Districts on ISBE Non-Recognition List for Defying Mask Order

The Illinois State Board of Education last week placed over 50 Illinois school districts as being non-recognized and on probation, for defying Governor Pritzker’s Executive order mandating school students wear masks.


The non-recognition also means these districts face losing participation in all school sports thru the Illinois High School Association.


School districts in the Regional Radio listening area that were on the I-S-B-E list include Shelbyville, Cowden-Herrick, Beecher City, Altamont, Saint Elmo, Effingham, Vandalia, Ramsey, Teutopolis, Altamont,  and Meridian. 


Initially, schools are placed on 60 days probation and if they don't take corrective action they risk losing recognition.
