Taylorville CUSD #3 Public Hearing and Notice of Intent

Notice of Intent and Public Hearing


This notice is to inform you of Taylorville Community Unit School District #3’s intent to withdraw from the NPT Cooperative effective July 1, 2022. The District believes it is in the best interests of its students to withdraw from NPT and develop its own special education program. By operating its own special education program, the District can provide more individualized, specially tailored educational services for students with disabilities.


The Taylorville Board of Education’s goal is to provide visionary leadership that focuses on improved outcomes for students with special needs. Specific goals and objectives are to:


  • Respond to the changing needs of special education students through shared vision  and collaboration;


  • Expand best practices knowledge and expertise through training and implementing progressive educational initiatives;


  • Increase effectiveness of special education services by implementing IDEA requirements and best practices for all students; and


  • Intensify the focus on fiscal responsibility by generating expanded sources of revenue, investigating additional areas of cost savings, and refining the current budget process.


As part of the withdrawal process, the District is required to hold a public hearing to allow members of the community, parents/guardians of students with disabilities, and other interested parties the opportunity to review and comment on Taylorville’s proposed comprehensive plan for educating students with disabilities, which the District presented to the Illinois State Board of Education (“ISBE”) on October 6, 2021. This notice serves as your invitation to attend the public hearing (information below). Copies of the District’s revised proposed comprehensive plan will be available at the public hearing. If you have any questions or would like to review a copy of the comprehensive plan in advance of the public hearing, please contact Michael Edwards ( or 217-824-4591).
