PEORIA, Ill. -- Elite will be back helping students again next year in District 150 schools.

Tonight at District 150's school board meeting, the Council approved more funding for the Elite Program.

Elite is a program that works with youths to help with behavioral management and character building.

This is the third year for Elite.

So far, Harrison and Treywn schools are part of the program.

"If a behavior is a problem and young people don't know how to behave, so that they can get their education and we need to do something about that, whatever it takes," said Peoria School Board Member Martha Ross.

The school board approved $50,000 for the Elite Program.
