The Taylorville School Board held their regular meeting on Tuesday evening. The board reviewed minutes, claims, and the treasurer’s report. The board heard from visitors. There was some concern about the meetings not being televised. President Tricia Marburger says that they will look into it at the next public relations committee meeting.
The board also had a recap of strategic planning, approved the building maintenance projects and the public school calendar revision for 2021-2022.
Treasurer Wendy Dulakis says the school held their audit and it went well. Adam Mathias says the school did drop in their financial rating from a 3.9 to a 3.8 but that’s due to some new bonds that were issued. Dulakis says that the education fund has increased and things are looking good.
The school board voted to raise substitute teacher wages from $95 to $125. President Marburger says it was to remain competitive with other schools in the area.
Tayorville Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty says that the COVID tracker is back on the website. The School did see a little increase after homecoming.
The board approved the sale of the Building Trades House and heard on two student disciplinary cases. The next regular school board meeting is set for November 8th.
