The Arthur CUSD 305 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process. The Board of Education is seeking everyone’s input in the search process. The Board requests that all staff, all parents and community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position. The survey can be accessed at: The survey deadline is: January 21, 2019 at 11:45 p.m. Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.

Taxes….the dreaded “T” word. Property tax, income tax, sales tax, etc. Nobody likes taxes, but this is how the Illinois legislature provides funding for our schools. From the perspective of the Arthur school district, we are blessed with high property values or high equalized assessed value (EAV). This allows the district to tax at a lower rate than neighboring districts. However, you may still believe your taxes are high as a result of how the county assesses the value of your home.
