Troubled Illinois school district faces possible state takeover

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV) -- Illinois has given the East St. Louis School District an ultimatum -- either accept financial oversight, or be taken over by the state.

Illinois State School Board is creating an agreement with the district pertaining to its finances, hiring decisions and contract renewals.

But if the district doesn't accept the agreement, it could be stripped of state recognition and its board of administrators.

East St. Louis School District would also lose its state and federal funding.
