Section B Pages Itol2 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Sporit Outfitted Bakalis to speed state aid funds to public schools By WILLIAM DONOVAN CHICAGO (AP) - A p r o g r a m of accelerated payment of state aid to public schools, likened lo "getting a paycheck early," has been announced by Michael J. Bakalis, Illinois superin- t e n d e n I: of public instruction. On another topic, Bakalis said parents of children in private and parochial schools "should not expect very much or very soon" aid under the state's Pnrochial law. A suit has tied up distribution of $30 million in aid. Accelerated payment of monthly state aid checks to public schools will be most helpful to the Chicago school district Bakalis said. Chicago's early payment of $15.6 million "reduces to $17.7 m i 11 i o n the amount, of rehabilitation bonds the Chicago Board of Education must sel! if it decides to complete all the school days which are currently scheduled in December," Bakalis said. A payment, to school districts would be withheld later in the school year, probably in March, Bakalis said. lie said early payment of one month's school aid — a total of $64 million statewide — gives Illinois districts an opportunity to save between $1.4 and $1.8 million in in- •• terest on outstanding debts or from tax anticipation notes. Bakalis said school districts have been put in a financial bind this year by late payment of, property taxes •because of tax protests, defeat of bond issues and property tax exemptions under the state's Homestead Act. : He said he hopes, funds tied up in tax protests this year will be released before March. Bakalis said he hopes for passage of proposed federal revenue-sharing. This would bring Illinois $80 to $100 million in federal funds, some of which may be available for education, he said. Bakalis said his office has found "hidden costs of Parochaid" larger than the amount appropriated. Provided by the Parochaid package is $20.5 million for textbooks and auxiliary services, $4.5 million for grants to families of poor students and $5 million for experimental education programs. The $20.5 million — which would be reduced by administrative costs to $18.5 million — must cover eligible schools whose needs may total $60 million, a spokesman said.
