Illinois Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon is launching an online survey to give parents and taxpayers a chance to comment on school district efficiency.

The survey will help Simon's Classrooms First Commission find ways to improve learning and make administrative duties more cost-effective.

The questionnaire was initialized Friday.

The commission will conduct public hearings on the topic too.

The first is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 13 at John A. Logan College in Carterville.

Comments are welcome on improving work within districts, across school districts or by combining districts.
