Who will coach what after the merger? I have been told that each job will have to be rehired after a state mandated merger. Everyone will have to put in a application and new interviews will take place. Anyone have any info on this?

Some people just don't get the picture. W.C. Coaches' jobs not up for grabs.

Well, not sure anyone knows at this point and time what the State will dictate, but ultimately the school system that comes of this (likely called Wayne County School System) will be run by a school board elected by the whole county including what is now the current Monticello Independent School System.

The 2010 Census numbers state that Wayne County had a population of 20,813. The city of Monticello's population was 5,981. Going by that Monticello's population makes up 29% of the county's population. If one calculated the percentage of the county's population that the Monticello School District made up I would guess it would be closer to 20% since the city limits of Monticello expanded well beyond the school district lines.

So one might guess that the school board districts would be determined by five equally divided areas that will include all of the county. How those districts would be determined or shaped, nobody knows now, but in any case the next time there is a school board election you would have five board members who would oversee the school's finances and hire the superintendent whose job it will be to oversee all else and do the board's bidding.

It would be a surprise if the State attempted to mandate that the Wayne County School System had to terminate anyone's job since their fiscal condition and system are in fine shape.

I don't anticipate that much will change in how anything is run except that the resultant school will be larger requiring more teachers and classrooms.

its absurd that some of Monticellos coaches wont be hired on when the merger takes place. the citizens will demand it. there are much more going on behind the scenes right now than most of you know. just sit back and sit tight, a lot that's gonna happen that neither side is going to like. but in the end the state will control what happens regardless if wayne did nothing wrong. cause in the end the $$$ controls everything.

there is lots of speculation at this time and I doubt than ANYOHE locally knows how all this will shake up abd the final on it. lets all be patient and wait and see. I think there will be changes to the school board as the entire county will need representation that includes the city.

How many coaches does one school need? If I work at a place of business that goes belly up then I'm SOL. I'm not guaranteed a position elsewhere. This could be the case. Why should Wayne Co. coaches give up their jobs to Monticello coaches? One head coach, and assistant coaches per sport, that's all. I just don't see it.@ Bobby S. is there something you know that the news media doesn't tell us? We all are just talking tho. No rights or wrongs here. Just friendly discussion. Time will tell. I do feel we will all be a little shocked when all the truth comes out. This one IS the people's business. It concerns the majority of households. I think they should report it play by play. Keeping secrets and keeping the parents and students wondering what is going on is not a good idea. It concerns their futures.

Well, I have news for you. Unless you pay both the county & city school taxes (which isn't happening - if it is, you need to protest) you shouldn't be voting but for board members of the school district in which you live. If you live in the Monticello Independent School District then you do NOT live int he Wayne County School District. The county is composed to two school district and there is no overlapping.

Not saying that whoever controls your machine or voting isn't screwing up and mistakenly allowing you to vote for both, rather that it isn't legal and shouldn't occur.

The Monticello Independent School System "citizen's" demands can be aimed at their school board because that's who they elected and who controlled what has taken place here, but their school system is bankrupt and they have no say about what is currently taking place. That is determined by the State, the Wayne County School System with input (but no vote) from their temporary superintendent.

By the way, the Monticello System doesn't have any $$$. If they do they should pony it up like now!

Why not? After all many students go to school out of their district. Kids who live out in the county go to MIS and a huge hunk of the city students go to WC. The district you live in dictating which school you go to was never an enforced rule. WC just won't take a MIS student with less than a C grade average. Other than that they enroll where they want. Used to be if your child was failing at MIS you could just change them to WC. Not anymore.
