The Taylorville School District, according to Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty has made the difficult decision to start the school year fully remote.
The first day of remote learning for students will be on Wednesday, August 19th.
The remote learning plan will be reviewed quarterly, but unlike the Spring there will be some limited in-person opportunities for students.
Dr. Dougherty says that she understands that this decision causes significant disruption for families, but staff and student safety must come first.
Remote learning will be vastly different than it was in the spring. Grading will be done, attendance will be taken, and material will be sent to families on a weekly basis.
