"These projects are tremendous investments in the future of our schools and our environment," Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago) said. "where better for students to learn about the best environmental practices than by experiencing them on their own school grounds? education has been a priority throughout my career, and it's been my privilege to work with local officials and the audubon and alcott communities to secure this funding so the students and devoted teachers and faculty at alcott and audubon can have the modern, efficient and environmentally safe facilities they deserve."
