Monday night the rumors were made true when Superintendent of Taylorville Schools Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau formally tendered his letter of resignation.
Fuerstenau says this is a tough decision for him to make but says the timing is right for him to move on, but he does assure that Taylorville is in great shape.
When asked what accomplishments stand out for him when looking back at his 12 year tenure as Superintendent, Fuerstenau says there is one that stands out above the rest.
There is a special meeting that is open to the public coming up tomorrow night at 7 at the unit office where they will officially start the search for the next Taylorville Schools Superintendent.
Fuerstenau appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
