The stopgap budget was signed and with it brings funds for 12 months for the public school system. And all may seem fine, but the Taylorville school system is still looking for more, and being cautious, because in 12 months they will be looking to see if the budget will be passed to continue to fund them. Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau, Superintendent of Taylorville Schools said that one thing that still needs to be fixed is the state government's formula for how much an area will be paid by the government to keep their schools open.
Fuerstenau said that there's an agreement that the formula isn't good, but the school systems are still waiting for a solution to take place.
