Technology continues to grow at a rapid pace, and the Taylorville School District continues to adapt for the education of area kids. Chris Kuntzman gave a state of district technology report to the Taylorville school board at Monday night’s meeting.
Taylorville School District Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau says the district continues to make progress in implementing the 1-to-1 initiative, giving each student a Chromebook for their studies.
Fuerstenau says a group of junior high students also joined the presentation by showing the board how to fly a drone.
Also at Monday’s meeting, the board approved the hiring of Jessica Miller as the next principal at Taylorville Junior High School. Miller comes to the district from Pana where she currently serves at the Technology Integration Specialist for the Pana School District.
The next school board meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 12 at 7 p.m. at the Taylorville School District Administration Building.
