School leaders in central Illinois are looking forward to a normal school year starting in the fall of 2021 for the 21-22 school year.
While leaders await guidance from the State of Illinois, a McLean County school leader is hoping the State will give local districts control to make decisions that are best for them. Dr. David Mouser is the Superintendent of Tri-Valley schools and looks forward to full classrooms and full school days.
Dr. Mouser believes if students are vaccinated, they do not need to wear masks. He points out even if the state mandates masks on students, it will not be a big deal because it hasn't been a big deal to this point in the school year.
While students and staff have been able to utilize the newly renovated high school, Dr. Mouser says they are looking forward to having it all together for the entirety of the school year next year.
Dr. Mouser says his students have celebrated prom, a spring homecoming, and look forward to a limited capacity graduation later this month.
