The Taylorville School Board Building Committee voted in favor of the Stonington Closure earlier this week. This does not mean that the building is officially going to close, it still needs to be voted on by the whole school board on October 9th. Building Committee Member Steve Turner, says the decision that he made came down to looking toward decisions that were made in the past regarding building usage.
Turner says that he will bring his findings to the School Board meeting on October 9th, and from there the school board will make a decision on what they would like to do with the Stonington facility.
The vote for the Stonington Closure by the building committee passed 2-1, and now it is up to the School Board to decide what will happen next.
