Champaign CUSD #4 continues to budget in a manner to position itself well for the sporadic state funding that Illinois public schools have experienced the past few years.  Our District’s financial stewardship has resulted in the State of Illinois awarding us the highest financial profile score of “Recognition” for fiscal years 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011.  Our District continues to search for and to implement best practices in public school operations to eliminate waste and to improve our efficiency in delivering high quality learning for all children.   

The following financial related reports should aid taxpayers in monitoring the financial stewardship of the district.
