Financial Strength

The data support that LFHS is an academically and fiscally sound institution that is continuously improving, and the candidates for D115 Board of Education nominated by the Lake Forest Caucus will work to continue this tradition of excellence at LFHS.

  • This is due to D115’s balanced budget and reasonable reserves.   Current and past D115 boards have managed the school budget with tremendous skill and expertise.

D115 has top rating from S&P of AAA and Moody’s of Aaa:

  • Only 73 school districts in the US that have earned these top bond ratings.  Appropriately, D115 was awarded the Illinois State Board of Education’s highest category of financial strength recognition for 2016-2017.
  • It’s clear the current non-partisan board serves the school and community and that the Caucus continues to slate outstanding candidates.
