The Evidence-Based Funding (EBF) for Student Success Act requires each Organizational Unit (school districts, laboratory schools, Regional Offices of Education, and Intermediate Service Centers) to complete an annual spending plan, regardless of the amount of EBF dollars received. A primary goal of the EBF Spending Plan is to make resource allocation decisions, especially those in service of identified student groups, more readily accessible to schools and stakeholders. ISBE is engaging in an iterative process to improve the EBF Spending Plan design each year. By FY 2024, the EBF Spending Plan will no longer be a document solely submitted to ISBE but rather integrated into the public budget process and annual budget template.

FY 2023 EBF Spending Plan:


  • August 1, 2022 - IWAS opens for FY 2023 spending plan submission
  • September 30, 2022 - IWAS closes for FY 2023 spending plan submission
