Taylorville – Major changes are coming next year in the Taylorville School District.
The school board voted last night to close South Elementary School. Students will be moved around to create so-called "centers" at other schools. The new "centers" will place kindergarten through 2nd grade at North Elementary, and grades three and four at Memorial Elementary.
Closing South Elementary is expected to save the district 650 thousand dollars.
