The start of the school year for public schools in the area is just over a week away. The school summer maintenance is wrapping up and teachers are preparing their lesson plans for the upcoming weeks. Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau, Superintendent of Taylorville Schools said, to him, it's always a good feeling to have kids and teachers back so the system can continue to do its job and educate the kids.
Fuerstenau asked the public to realize when school starts so the transition from summer to the school year can be a safe one as the buses begin to run and kids will be out and about in the mornings and afternoons.
The first day of Public Schools is Thursday August 18th. Fuerstenau appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
