Superintendent's Report 

Building updates - The gym roof has passed the "pull test” and next they will actually do the roof work.

Next month Kevin Handy will be here to discuss long terin building options.

Springfield - There is PTELL discuss again as a part of a package deal with forced consolidation to try and sell the progressive income tax.

Elementary bus drills have been completed. Vision and Hearing screening will be September 25, provided by the Morgan County Health Dept. We are in dire need of substitute teachers.

Technology Report -The Taylorville school district once again was kind enough to donate computers to A-C. We also received 2 mobile carts from them as well. The carts will be used at the Elementary.
