A busy school board meeting last night saw a packed house as it was standing room only at the start. Roughly 10-15 new faculty were in attendance and each had the opportunity to introduce themselves to the board. Some new business handled last night was the consideration to hire a new HR Clerk, this passed unanimously. The big discussion however came for the consideration of purchasing a new dump truck to replace the old van that has seen better days. Dr. George Freese was the lone vote of no and explains his reasons why.
Dr. Ronald Mizer was the one vote to abstain or pass when the roll call came up, he says when it boils down to it there were some questions he would have liked to have answered.
School Board Member Sarah Van Huss was one of the yes votes for the new dump truck, in her mind this was a no-brainer as the district was long overdue for a new vehicle
Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty is looking forward to the kids being in the halls for the first day of classes on Thursday, but teachers are ready to report tomorrow.
As a whole the Taylorville School Board is looking forward to another great academic year in Central Illinois.
