The Taylorville School District can finally breath easy now that school funding reform has finally been passed in Illinois. With the new funding system, it looks as though Taylorville schools will be funded on a level the district hadn’t seen under the old system, leading to less opportunities for students in the district.
Taylorville Schools Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau says it’s been a long battle, but the feelings towards the future for Taylorville schools can finally be called “optimistic”.
The specifics of the new funding formula are yet to be determined, however a big thing for Taylorville schools is that they didn’t lose money, which makes budgeting easier moving forward.
Dr. Fuerstenau appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
