Print PDF

Monticello CUSD #25 will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the third statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for teachers, students, and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From January 12 through March 13, teachers, students, and parents will be asked to take a 20-minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. This survey will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation. The Illinois 5Essentials Survey provides a comprehensive picture of a school’s organizational culture in an individualized report measuring five “essentials” critical for school success including Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction. Students in grades 6-12th will complete the survey at school. If you prefer that you child not participate please complete this opt-out form and return it to your school by January 10, 2015. All parents and teachers PK-12th grade will be invited to participate via district email.  A link to the survey will be provided in mid-January.

Smith Receives 2014 Voya Unsung Heroes Award

Print PDF

Voya Unsung HeroesEach year, Voya selects 100 finalists to receive a $2,000 award, while three of them are selected as Top Winners to receive additional grants.

According to Voya's Unsung Heroes Website, Jennifer "Smith’s innovative teaching idea, 'Sages in 3D,' is designed to strengthen students’ understanding of all aspects of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts through hands-on experiences using 3D printers. The program will enable students to learn how to create and build prototypes and create designs using 3D printers. Students will improve their problem solving skills as they navigate the use of new, cutting edge technology. Students will also be encouraged to create manipulatives and models using the 3D printer as a way to increase not only their understanding of scientific concepts, but also their understanding of the potential of 3D printing. In order to help the middle school students identify practical applications for 3D printing, they will create manipulatives that the teachers and students will use throughout the district’s middle school classrooms. Through this project, students will directly see how technology can positively impact the future. They will also be encouraged and challenged to build creatively and critically."

Public Act 98-669 and Public Act 98-801were signed into law this summer and place enhanced requirements on school districts when dealing with bullying issues among students.  Our district has addressed these issues annually and we will continue to be diligent in our efforts to elimnate bullying from our hallways, playgrounds, cafeterias, and classrooms.  These laws include an outline of guidelines for schools, many of which our district has been following for years, including timely report investigations, follow-up, and access to social services.  Also included are criteria for dealing with cyber-bullying that may occur outside of the school day but creates a negative impact within our schools.  Our Building Principals will be dicussing this information with faculty and staff, training has been made available, and information will be sent home to parents to the topic of bullying.  Our School Board will consider the adoption of a revised Board Policy on Bullying at our meeting in October.  This revised policy along with other resources can be found at the links below.
