D300's Legislative Journey on the Sears EDA


For several months in 2011, thousands of students, parents, residents, staff, and School Board members from Community Unit School District 300 (Carpentersville, IL) waged a relentless grassroots campaign to either end the Sears tax breaks that had cost D300 over $200 million since 1990 -- or to ensure that any legislative extension of these tax breaks were fair, reasonable, accountable, and transparent. Led by first-time Superintendent Michael Bregy, the D300 community achieved a bittersweet victory in their fight to ensure the Illinois General Assembly heard their concerns on how best to keep Sears in their community without so heavily burdening the schools. This is a photo retrospective of their legislative journey, shown at a School Board meeting on December 12, 2011 - the same day that the Illinois House of Representatives finally approved a compromise plan.
