Stonington Elementary will remain open through the 2018-2019 school year, but elementary consolidation will likely again be on the table next year.
Taylorville School District Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau says with the recent board vacancy and other issues cropping up, elementary consolidation was put on the backburner this year.
Fuerstenau says the board knows Stonington Elementary’s future is a big issue with some parents. He says the board did not want to rush to make a decision that those parents are very passionate about.
Fuerstenau appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
