Welcome to Monroe City Schools!
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Monroe City Schools, a district working towards academic excellence! 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. 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 was sent home at the beginning of the year, and a separate page will be available on the "Parents" tab soon.Please check back on this page as we make announcements and statements regarding Monroe City School System.
