Actualy there are TWO other schools in town. People are always forgetting about Immanuel Christian. It's a great alternative if you want your kid in a smaller school.

ICA is a fantastic school, however, it only teaches through the 6th grade. High schoolers need somewhere to go.

Actually I am surprised that everyone is willing to let this happen so easily. What about the people in office that mishandled money? So they just get away with it?
This is the problem the town of Monticello has, it allows officials to deplete funds, mishandle money, and then nothing is done about it. Consolidating is an easy way out. It is also a way out that would allow the people responsible to get away with mishandling all of the money. The federal and state gives a lot of money to the public schools. So there is no reasonable way this school is so broke it needs to be consolidated.
What has happened is you have a few greedy people trying to get away with a scam. This goes on both sides. The people who made the decision on Monticello's side and the officials from Wayne County that bartered this deal.
If this happens it will not be long before another town ends up consolidating the entire county, because it has been ran so poorly.

By consolidating the entire county I mean the whole thing. The entire town would be better off consolidated with Somerset or one of the other surrounding counties that is growing and not FAILING. Monticello/Wayne County as a town and county are complete failures. The county and town are failing economically, academically, financially, and in any other way possible. Most of all the officials are failing the people.

I agree with you Citizen. Those responsible for the mishandling and misuse of local, state, and Federal money should be held accountable and not escape under the shield of merging the schools. After all a former County Clerk was held to account criminally for misuse of public funds. So what about inflated salaries for positions not needed, shady real estate deals involving both Supts. and a wanna-be coach board member using state funds, failure to follow bid laws on purahcses and excavation work, faillure to get state approval for major capital expenses,etc. Those people should have known the laws, but did not follow them. So, will they get away with it under the cloak of merging the schools and leaving the students of Monticello without the opportunity to attend a small family oriented school where more children than just a select few have the opportunity to participate in sports and school activities and teachers and administrators who know their students all the way from Preschool through High School? I hope not. It will be a travesity if they get away with it.

Yay for morons spreading misinformation.

People aren't "letting this happen". There is no "barter". There is no "consolidation". So stop being an idiot. The reality is very simple: Monticello Independent has been mismanaged to the point that kids don't pass tests and they cannot keep the doors open. That's it. The district is shutting down. If you read one of the letters they sent out to students, the word "merger" was used misleadingly to save face. In reality there is no "merger". Any discussions between districts are to pass information and government owned property from Monticello to Wayne County. That is it.

There will be no change from "Wayne County" to some other silly name. The Cardinal and red/white will remain. There is no bartering because only one party has anything to bring to the table (and by that I mean that Wayne County has a school district and Monticello will no longer). So, stop being a bunch of knee-jerk idiots that don't get how the world works. When something fails, another takes its place. It doesn't bargain with the thing that isn't failing. The less fit one simply goes away, and those still in the running take what they had.

They will more than likely get away with it. It is Monticello we are talking about. Corruption runs rampant at every level of government. With Monticello being so small the local officials have been able to completely destroy this town. If you notice this town has more vacant lots, derelict buildings, recently closed businesses, and wasted space than businesses that are operating. This town is steadily headed over a cliff. It is near the point of no return. When a school that gets so much money from federal and state resources gets shut down due to mismanaged funds the citizens should wake up. This should be the wake up call. The citizens should protest and march right down to the board and let them know they are not going to get away with it. Also people need to be writing state officials and demand an answer as to why no one is punished. The problem with Monticello is the fact that officials are running wild and draining our local economy, and the citizens keep turning a blind eye to it. All of the other towns around Monticello are growing. Some say it is because Monticello wants to stay small. That is a farce it is due to the incompetent and greedy local officials in Monticello.

If Monticello School shuts down it will be just another step towards the towns downfall. It will and can happen. The way things are ran and the way things are going this town will be lucky to make it 20 more years.

Regardless this is another example of how this town is failing. You may see it differently, but I view this as another step in the wrong direction. To continually allow things to consolidate or close simply because the officials failed to do their job will ruin the town.
I don't believe that either school system has been a shining beacon of academic success, but to throw in the hat without punishing those responsible is pathetic.

That's because you're obviously very stupid (though I don't blame Monticello Independent for doing that to you). There is absolutely no downside to eliminating government overhead and waste. There is nothing but improvement on the horizon. A county with a population of <1/2% of the state has no need for two school districts, and if you were less of an idiot you'd be glad that problem is being remedied.

Can we keep this conversation on a grown up level without all the name calling please? That is totally unnecessary among adults. There are people involved with this situation who take it seriously. MIS kids who grew up in that school are hurt and teachers and staff are worried about their jobs being lost. It's not laughable by any means. If you can't control yourself simply abstain. OK? My son has eleven years at that school and does not want to graduate as a "Cardinal".

My son is not eleven. He is 17. I said he has eleven years in at that school. You didn't read. The financial failure of MIS is NOT my son's fault. No it is not Wayne County School's fault either. What in the world are you talking about putting hate into an eleven year old and bad parenting skills? See if you can get your ridiculous comment removed before anyone else reads it.
