The first day of school for students in the Taylorville School District was on Wednesday and Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty is excited for school to be back in session despite things starting out remotely.
The new social and emotional counselors are going to have a huge role in the start of school in Taylorville.
Remote learning will be significantly different this school year, according to Curriculum Director Anita Brown.
Remote learning is especially difficult for younger kids. Grades K-2 will be using a program called Seesaw to stay connected with students and families, according to Brown.
