Four local Community Colleges are receiving financial support from the Illinois Community College Board. According to the Board, John A Logan College, Southeastern Illinois College, Rend Lake College, and Shawnee Community College will each get over 400,000 dollars. Seven community colleges throughout the state were selected to split a total of $3 million. Schools were chosen based on the assumption that the districts with the least amount of local property tax funding would have the hardest time operating without state funding.
