Taylorville School Board Meets for February Meeting

The Taylorville School Board of Education met for a regular meeting on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. where Dr. Ron Mizer pushed for a new plan concerning the high school construction project. After the consent agenda was approved, consideration and any action was made for a proposal by Dr. Ron Mizer. Dr. Mizer presented a rendering of a new build plan that he created that included an auditorium with over 500 seats and a gymnasium, along with choir and band rooms.

Action had been taken to continue with Option A Phase One of the building project in the previous meeting and Lori Wemple inquired about the logistics of restarting the bidding process. Dr. Mizer received no further questions regarding his plans.


Tom Finks, a Board Member, suggested that the board call a special meeting to reexamine options for the building project to financially support an auditorium.


Tom Finks and Dr. Ron Mizer voted yes in support of the special meeting, Lori Wemple, Carla Mikey, Ann Chandler, and Brenda Patrick voted no, and the proposal for a special open meeting failed.

Under new business, the Capital Area Career Center gave a presentation with two representatives describing the advantages of students sharpening their technical and professional skills with CACC.

Members of the Christian County C.E.O. Program gave a presentation on adding a third business to their operations. They plan to host a wedding-themed murder mystery banquet at the Pillars Event Center in Taylorville. Emma Althoff, Mylie Sims, and Ella Moreland broke down the event's details, including ticket selling, location, and sponsorship opportunities.


The selling of the Building Trades House for 194,000 was approved unanimously along with the FY2025 school calendar.

Interim Superintendent Deborah Philpot gave her superintendent's report.


The meeting concluded with an executive session and the next Taylorville School Board meeting is set for Tuesday, March 12th at 6:00 p.m.
