Go Fund Me account set up for struggling Streator schools

Posted by wlpo on March 28, 2016

With the state providing no help and taxpayers saying no to raising taxes, there’s a new approach being taken to fund Streator Elementary schools.

Jan Urbance who is the co-president of the teacher’s union in the elementary district has started a “Go Fund Me” page called “Fighting to keep the doors open!” In her plea for help, Urbance says “we have made so many cuts that it is no longer about hoping the kids of Streator receive a solid education, but that they hopefully have a place to go to school a month from now.”

Urbance says if they can raise $125,000, her union would among other things continue sports programs and clubs and rehire a physical education teacher who has been cut. To make a donation, click Streator Elementary Go Fund Me
