Monday night, the Taylorville School Board met to discuss items involving the Taylorville School District. After recognizing Illinois scholars the treasurer’s report was given by Dr. Gregg Furstenau, and the board passed the report unanimously. Shortly after that, the new school board member, Dr. Ronald Mizer, was sworn in to his new position.


The board then moved on to new business which first discussed the consideration of an Ameren Gas Station Easement which cleared unanimously. Next, Furstenau walked the board through the Junior High window replacement project. Windows at the Junior High are going to be replaced in July. Following that was the technology integration specialist presentation showing how new technologies have been introduced to all levels of the Taylorville School District such as virtual reality and z-space, and how it is being used in the classroom. Furstenau was impressed with what the presentation showed, and explains his thoughts.



After the presentation was the superintendent report, and then the meeting adjourned. The Taylorville School Board meets on the second Monday of every month.
