The Taylorville School Board met on Monday evening to discuss business, approve minutes, and review claims. The board agreed to take action on funding for a legal cause to support districts who are fighting for local control from ISBE and the Government. Dr. Chris Dougherty explained that it didn’t sign up Taylorville for the lawsuit, just that they would support other schools that did.
The board also switched from Blue Cross Blue Shield to Health Alliance and adopted the 2021 Tax Levy. The board heard from Aramark, who talked about some of the programs and benefits that Aramark is offering. The board received a copy of the policy updates from ISBE. Dr. Dougherty says that with all the law changes, there are a lot of differences between this year and last year.
The board announced they would be moving their meetings and after much discussion announced they would be the third Tuesday of every month.
The meetings will switch starting in January. The board went into a closed session for litigation discussion, security procedures, and the purchase or lease of property discussion. No action was taken from the closed session.
