  •  State Budget Letter to the Community


    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    As you know by now the impasse at the Capitol continues as legislatures and the Governor were unable to reach agreement on a budget.  In the coming days, you will hear a great deal of speculation pertaining to whether schools will open in the fall.


    Without a state appropriation for K-12 education in Fiscal Year 2017 (begins 7/1/16), many school districts will face dire circumstances.  For Pearl City Schools, state funding comprises nearly 43% of revenue for the Education Fund and about 51% of the revenue for the Transportation Fund.  The district has fund reserves coupled with local property tax and Federal revenue that will allow the opening of school and should sustain the district through the month of April.  Of course this would mean that the dysfunction at the Capitol has resulted in a shift of the cost of educating Illinois’ children to local property taxpayers.


    The top priority of our elected officials must be to enact a budget that includes adequate funds for public schools for the upcoming school year.  This will ensure that schools across the state open on time and are adequately funded for the full year.  An evidence-based funding model seems to be the most sound and fair long-term answer to having an adequate and equitable school funding model in Illinois.  It is founded on research-based practices.


    The toxic climate at the Capitol often leads one to avoid getting involved.  Yet, as taxpayers and as citizens who are concerned about the health and future of our state, now is the time to be engaged.  Contact your elected officials (Sen. Tim Bivins at and Rep. Brian Stewart at to let them know your feelings about the current “state of the state.”  Meanwhile, be assured that your Board of Education and I will continue to monitor this situation closely.  We will also continue to develop contingency plans to respond to the prospect of an ongoing budget impasse into the fall.  We are committed to serving our school community without interruption.


    Thank you for your continued support of our schools.




    Tim Thill

    Superintendent, Pearl City Schools

  • MakerGirl 3D Printing Sessions

    Monday, June 20 at Pearl City School 

    MakerGirl introduces young girls from the ages of 7-11 to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through 3D printing sessions. Led by female engineering students from the University of Illinois, MakerGirl sessions foster creativity, spark enthusiasm, and ignite passions for innovation and design.  Pearl City School helped to host the MakerGirl project along with the University of Illinois Extension Office.  About 30 area girls participated in the project, learning about careers in engineering and other related STEM fields, using Tinkercad to create and the 3D printers to make their creations.  Pearl City Schools have been using their 3D MakerBot printer and will continue to incorporate it and coding into our curriculum, in order to prepare our students for the problems and the careers of the future.  

    See the attached links for area media coverage of the event.
