TCUSD approves K-4 building model
Last year, the Taylorville School Board debated closing Stonington Elementary School. In March of this year, the board announced that the school would remain open for at least the 2018-2019 school year.

It is also related to another phrase, one often given in the context of leadership – “the perfect is the enemy of the good”.
