Last year Governor Pat Quinn vetoed the salaries for the 44 regional superintendents.
This month, the Illinois State Board of Education has put the appropriation for the officials back into its proposed budget.
Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents president Bob Daiber says he's hopeful the General Assembly will keep the funding line and the governor will approve it.
"We certainly believe we're making our case as to why we are so important as the delivery system of state services to public schools," said Daiber.
It's official. Regional education superintendents across Illinois are going to get paychecks again after more than four months.
Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Monday restoring the superintendents' pay.
Quinn eliminated their salaries from the state budget over the summer. He said the state needed the roughly $13 million for other services.
The superintendents and their assistants have not been paid since June.
