April 11 is the last day for a school board to adopt resolutions to place public policy questions on the ballot for the June 28, 2022 General Primary Election (105 ILCS 5/9-1.5 and 10 ILCS 5/28-2). The local school board election authority is responsible for receiving citizen-led questions and certifying petitions and board resolutions for referenda.
School districts have until April 21 for the board secretary to certify public policy questions to the election authority (10 ILCS 5/28-5). 
The date of the 2022 General Primary Election was changed last year (by Public Act 102-0015) from March 15 to June 28, 2022. 
IASB tracks election results of school finance referenda for bond issues, school tax rate propositions, and county school facilities sales tax outcomes. The historical data is available online.
