Superintendent Dr. Fuerstenau Pleased by Community Support at Board Meeting

The Taylorville Community Unit School District #3 Board Meeting was well attended by Citizens for Students and Community on Monday night as the room was filled with those who sat, stood or were standing out in the hallway. Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau told Regional Radio News following the meeting that he was pleased with the turnout of those that are concerned with the FY17 Budget considerations.

The group mentioned in the letter they would like the opportunity to help pass Senate Bill 1, which was introduced by State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill), and to learn about tax referendum possibilities. Dr. Fuerstenau says they are learning more about school funding reform and what the State is currently going through.

Though the Board did not schedule another public meeting like the one occurred last month, Fuerstenau stated those that still have concerns, questions, or thoughts can call or e-mail the Board members regarding the FY17 Budget considerations.

Regarding other Board action, Fuerstenau commended Chris Kuntzman on presenting the annual District Technology Report that was given.
