Is it to little to late. The scores suck. I am not going to say that I had the best school grades. Why not keep the schools open longer. You see schools on TV that have schools until 5 pm. What is wrong with that. Could it work in this area. One of my old teachers told the class once that the exchange students from like Russia know the complete history of the US and always done well. Would kids now a days hear the term new world and not think of the NWO or spout off like some kinda a conspiracy theory nut

yes and the taxpayers picked up all the tab. how many more people did they hire to start that program?
A program should be looked into to purchase books for the students. It's questionable how Monticello is worse when many of Wayne's students are without books. Many students share books while others have none. Funding exists to create teaching positions. Test scores could improve even more if students had the tools to learn. After glancing over property taxes and reading what most families are responsible to pay for school taxes one would question why students are without books in the classroom. Jobs are created overnight and thousands of dollars are directed to new salaries and job titles instead of investing in products needed to aid students to learn better.

If your children don't have books, you should go ask the school board and/or local newspaper why that is.

This is true for Monticello and Wayne County. Math books are a must. Sad!

Very sad and disappointing. Now schools have lists of copying paper and tissue paper. Taxes or budgets apparently do not cover the essentials anymore. Before a person could go online and see the jobs of different people in the schools. Now that has been pulled and a person has to make a request to see it. If you do see the list you'll find that many of the same people hold many different titles and are paid comfortably for each. That's included in the budget but not math books. Sounds like the State should be digging on both sides.

They apparently told at meeting tonight it will be merging. Wayne Co. colors and cardinal mascot will change also to be fair to all students. Guess it is official. State takes over MIS Jan.1.

At least the Monticello school system cares about the students and treats everyone equally rich or poor. In the wc school system if your not into sports clubs rotc or bands your basiclly an outcast student nobody cares if your having a hard time end of story....... the staff at monticello schools always has a open ear to listen and try to help the students succeed not based on wealth and popularity but because of the dedicated staff and pride that the monticello school system has.

That is an untrue statement, the kind we will hear a lot of soon. Apparently you don't know the history of MIS. It was started for the town's elite or "rich" peoples kids. Wayne Co. was the poor class of students. But time changes things. The old town money and their families are gone. Wayne Co. treats every child fairly, depending on the effort the student puts forth. Many kids have switched back and forth from one school to the other more than once. Monticello will be welcome to join them as one system. I'm glad no students are thought to be better than others these days.

There is something for every student to be active in if they choose to particpate. In every school you will find the more popular ones that have their own little clicks, but in general most all the kids are friendly and an accepting student body. Of course if Monticello students go there with a chip on their shoulder that says "I hate it here and I'm better than this", then they will have a harder time adjusting. Of course they will miss their former school but WC can become their school too very quickly with a good attitude and realizing why it had to happen.

Which rich kids are you referring to? They all look the same to me, just children. Can you say it's any different than any other school? I agree there will always be a few from families who have more. These students have the right to an education. Yes Wayne Co. does have some good athletic programs. What is wrong with that? Must they be a bunch of losers to be a good school? But I must say, these programs are supported greatly by the parents. The state cut their budget for such things to the bone. The band needed a semi truck to haul eqipment because the old one could not be fixed. Who do you think bought it? It sure wasn't the state. It was unselfish parents, donations and hard work by the students to raise the money. That is one good reason MIS will be better off to merge. They are just too small to support the programs larger schools do. This decision is a long time in coming, because MIS wanted to stay alive. Times are hard and the state feels it is needless to try to run two systems in the same small town. Nothing mean or dirty was done to MIS. It is meant for the good of the kids.

Long time coming is all I can say about Monticello School. We're to small to support two public school districts. Has anyone thought of the money city tax payers will save not having to pay a city school tax? I hope the transition goes smoothly because in the end students, teachers, parents and taxpayers are going to reap rewards! Imho, this should have happened 20 years ago.

No drugs at Monticello School? Who are you trying to kid. I don't know the answer to that question about drug busts. Can you give us the numbers please? Don't blame Wayne Co. school system for this. It is purely an economic decision.

You're a pathetic liar. I know multiple people that sold drugs during their time at Monticello High. Why are you making up this garbage? Let that failure of a school close the doors and fade away, and be thankful that fewer of your tax dollars will be wasted.
