A Message From the CSBO

My name is Jason Smith and I am the Chief School Business Official for Coal City Schools. I have had the pleasure of being part of this school district since 1993 and in this position since 2007.  In my role as business manager, I am responsible for overseeing all the financial operations of the district as well as facilities & construction projects for the district. I strive to use my problem-solving and communication skills to increase the efficiency of the organization.


Coal City Community Unit School District #1 strives to be responsive to residents' concerns and operate in a fiscally responsible and efficient manner. Government transparency, or the ability to access information and documents, is a priority.

While much of the information below is located in other areas of the website, this page consolidates a variety of key information all in one place.


Citizens have a right to know how their tax dollars are being spent and how their government is operating. FOIA requests provide an important means through which the public can obtain information regarding the activities of government agencies, which are required by law to respond to FOIA requests. Additionally, other information is listed in this section for convenience.


In this section of our website, you will find several pages containing useful information related to district finances including a history of Budgets, AFR, and Audits.


If you have questions, please contact me or one of our staff members for assistance at (815) 634-2287 or via email.
