Bushnell- The Bushnell City board of education decided to approve the amended budget for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year on Wednesday. Superintendent Kathy Dinger mentioned the budget hearing prior to a school board meeting held earlier this year and she noticed that there isn't many changes needed for the budget.
In comparison to 2018, less parents called teachers to see how their children were doing in school. In order to better engage students, the school board decided to have a training conference that would make students become more active in classrooms. The school board made adjustments like giving students early dismissal on Wednesdays. The school board also approved the student/parent handbook for the upcoming school year.
They also voted for the Illinois Muncipal Retirement Fund and free attendance from students that dont live in the district. The next school meeting will be held July 17 at 6 p.m in the Bushnell-Prairie High School libary.
