Monticello Superintendent Named "2016 Superintendent of Distinction"

Print PDF

IASA LogoMONTICELLO (IASA) — Dr. Victor Zimmerman, superintendent of Monticello CUSD 25 in Monticello, has been named the 2016 Superintendent of Distinction by his colleagues in the Abe Lincoln Region of the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA).

Zimmerman will be honored at an awards luncheon April 21 in Springfield. State Superintendent Dr. Tony Smith is the featured speaker at the luncheon that will honor 21 IASA regional Superintendents of Distinction.

“I am humbled to represent the many fine superintendents across the state of Illinois with this honor,” said Zimmerman, who has been an educator for 29 years, serving as teacher, administrator and adjunct professor at the University of Illinois before becoming superintendent of the Monticello school district in 2007. “Our district has an excellent reputation as a ‘go-to” district when it comes to the all-around education for our students and a great place to work for our faculty and staff – I am grateful to have the opportunity to lead Monticello CUSD 25 – where every day is a great day to be a Sage!”

NEW HS Referendum Not Approved

Print PDF

“Shall the Board of Education of Monticello Community Unit School District Number 25, Piatt, DeWitt and Champaign Counties, Illinois, acquire and improve a site for and build and equip a high school building, improve the sites of and alter, repair and equip the existing Washington Elementary and Monticello High School Buildings for elementary school purposes and issue bonds of said School District to the amount of $40,900,000 for the purpose of paying the costs thereof?”

The voters of the Monticello CUSD 25 did not approve the referendum on the March 15 ballot for a NEW Monticlelo High School and the creation of a two campus district plan.  Unofficial vote tallies show the results as 2003 YES votes to 2597 NO votes dsitrict-wide.  While the question garnered more YES votes this time compared to NOV 2014, it also garnered more NO votes as more total voters went to the polls in 2016.  A majority of our community supports our schools, our students, and our teachers in all ways, but a majority of our voters did not support the plan that was on the ballot for approval.  We still have four buildings with original build dates between 1893 and 1924 and we are still in need of a long-term facility improvement plan for Monticello CUSD 25.   We will move forward on this discussion in the coming months.  Thank you to everyone that supported the process from day one.  It's still a Great Day to be a Sage!

Monticello Teachers Receive Award For Dyslexia Program

Print PDF

Dyslexia AwardMONTICELLO (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.
