Welcome to Monroe City Schools!
Welcome to the 2015-2016
school year at Monroe City Schools, a district working towards academic
excellence! We kick off our school year with our new teachers on August
10, our veteran teachers on August 11, and our students reporting on August 17 for
a half-day. Full days for students begin
on Tuesday, August 18. If you have any
questions about specific times, please contact your child’s school for more
There are many things
happening academically and with the physical buildings, as well. As part of the bond referendum that was
passed, many schools have received additions or modifications, and some are
scheduled to begin soon. There are
always exciting things happening in the Monroe City School System.
We are on the cutting
edge of education in terms of curriculum development, technology, and student
engagement. Monroe City Schools’ Teacher Leaders have spent countless
hours this summer preparing lesson and activities to engage our students and
plan curricula for the school year. Our
Teacher Leaders provide in-depth training for all staff members across the
district. Common assessments, scopes and sequences, and appropriate
professional developments come after months of meetings that are still ongoing
and will continue throughout the school year.
We are very proud of the
fact that Monroe City Schools’ students who took the ACT during the Spring,
2015, had an average composite score of 19.6.
That puts our students ahead of the state average and right in line, or
ahead, of the surrounding districts.
That is a huge accomplishment, but we know we have more work to do to
get those scores even higher!
With the addition of
over 1000 laptops distributed to schools and a completion of a district-wide
wireless network we are well-equipped to handle computerized testing once it is
implemented. In addition, we are providing Office 365 free of
charge to all district students and faculty as a means of improving our
student-centered, engaging learning environment. Information regarding the
implementation of Office 365 will be sent home with the students and will be
posted on the website soon.
Monroe City Schools’ web
presence has been reworked, and the individualized school apps for both droid
and IOS systems are available now. Instructions for downloading and using the school apps will be sent home at the beginning of the year, and a separate page will be available on the "Parents" tab soon.
