For example, a student–teacher ratio of 10:1 indicates that there are 10 students for every one teacher. The term can also be reversed to create a teacher–student ratio.

History

Thompsonville School District 62 was a grade school district.

The district of one-room Old Cantrell School was annexed by Thompsonville in 1957. [4] When Logan Community Consolidated School District 110 was dissolved in 2005, part of its territory was annexed to District 62. [1]

Thompsonville Community High School District 112 was a high school district.

Since at least 2002, District 62 and District 112 shared a superintendent and a principal, and were mostly in the same building. [5] They also shared transportation. [6] A reorganization study in the early 2000s, sponsored by a $4,500 Illinois State Board of Education grant, found that the two districts were not eligible to consolidate under the state laws at that time. [6]

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) administers public education in the state of Illinois. The State Board consists of nine members who are appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate. Board members serve four-year terms, with State Board membership limited to two consecutive terms. The board sets educational policies and guidelines for public and private schools, preschool through grade 12. It analyzes the aims, needs and requirements of education and recommends legislation to the Illinois General Assembly and Governor for the benefit of the more than 2 million school children in the state.

School district consolidation was passed by referendum in the April 17, 2007 Illinois consolidated election, on the question "Shall Thompsonville Grade School District 62 and Thompsonville Community High School District 112 establish a Community School District?" It was the only consolidation on the April 2007 ballot in Illinois. [7] The tax referendum for the new district also passed in the same election, on the question "Shall a unit district levy taxes at the rate of Education Fund 2.00%, Operations/Maintenance 0.05%, Transportation 0.24%, etc., each upon all of the taxable property of the district?" [7] The consolidation took effect on July 1, 2007. [1]

A referendum is a direct vote in which an entire electorate is invited to vote on a particular proposal. This may result in the adoption of a new law. In some countries, it is synonymous with a plebiscite or a vote on a ballot question.
