The Taylorville School Board met Monday evening to discuss business. Claims were approved. Antoinette Spinner, A Special Ed Teacher with North School, was awarded for her hard work this last year on the National Board Certification. The School Board also approved the overnight trip request to Des Moines on February 7th through the 9th for the Iowa Beef Expo Livestock Judging Contest. Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty talked about some of the goals for the Strategic Planning Update.
Chris Kuntzman gave a technology update. In his update, Kuntzman said one of the main focuses is on cybersecurity. That focus is huge because Mt. Zion had been hacked last year, and they are still working on fixing a lot of the issues there. There is also new intercoms at Central School. Kuntzman also says that they have been working hard to get all the computers at school updated to Windows 10.
Dr. Dougherty also has been looking for a special education director.
The school calendar adjustment used up 3 snow days. So far there are 2 left, before they have to start adjusting end of the school year dates. The board of education finished with a closed session.
