MONTICELLO (Journal-Republican) — Monticello’s Lincoln and White Heath Elementary schools have received an award for their dyslexia screening and intervention program that was put into effect in 2012. Intervention teacher Jenna Branch and special education instructor Mary Rhodes received training on how to identify those with dyslexia, and since 2012 have screened about 110 incoming elementary students per year.
The efforts have been recognized by Everyone Reading Illinois, which awarded the schools with the 2015 “It Takes a Village” award.
“The award is nice, but I think mainly I see that we’re helping kids, and bottom line that is what is most important to me,” said Rhodes, who along with Branch will be a presenter at the ERI fall conference, “Dynamics of Dyslexia” on Oct. 7 in Naperville.
The Monticello CUSD #25 Board of Education hosted a Town Hall Meeting October 8 at 7:00PM at Monticello High School Moore Gym. A large group of community members, faculty and staff attended the meeting to hear details about two options that the Board will select from for long term facility improvements in Monticello CUSD #25 for placement on the March 15 ballot. A community-wide survey will be sent out with information collected to assist the School Board in making a direction. The survey can also be taken online by clicking here.

The historic mansion of Robert Allerton will be transformed into a Las Vegas style casino for one night only on Friday, November 6 from 7:00pm-11:00pm. Food, drink, raffles, and auctions will accompany our many gaming tables. Unlike Vegas, the house doesn’t always win because all proceeds will go to support the MAEF and its mission to support, enrich, and enhance the educational opportunities and initiatives in Mon-ticello CUSD #25. Get your tickets now as they will go fast. Check out "Viva Las Sages 2015" for tickets.
