The Taylorville Board of Education held their monthly meeting Monday evening, and budget talks, nationwide awards and construction updates were on the agenda.
Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau explains that thanks to larger funding from the newly passed state budget, Taylorville actually pulled in more money than they spent this past year.
Fuerstenau says that the summer is a busy time for the school district even without students, renovations and repairs of the buildings and grounds become a main focus for the district.
The Board of Education also approved several personal decisions, hiring of new staff, and turnover of departed staff in a closed session at Monday’s meeting. The next Board of Education meeting will be on July 9th.
