|Subject:||Publication of School District Notices|
|I will be reintroducing Senate Bill 374 of the 2017-18 legislative session to provide a cost saving opportunity to school districts. The legislation would amend Section 106 of the Public School Code to authorize school districts to advertise public notices in a more flexible manner. Current law requires a school district to publish public notices in a newspaper printed and generally circulated in that school district.
A modification to this mandate will provide needed relief to school districts and help them better control their legal advertising costs. My legislation will provide districts with more flexibility by also allowing the option to publish public notices in a district newspaper, a newspaper circulating generally in the district, a legal newspaper circulating where the district is located, on the district’s official public internet website or that of a newspaper, or a community newspaper.
Print advertising is expensive and in difficult economic times, school districts need the ability to exercise maximum flexibility and the discretion to manage their costs.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important cost saving measure.
Introduced as SB410
