Over the past several years, families, students and community members have expressed an interest in having the Monroe School District reevaluate school start & dismissal times. We hear you and are working to form a committee who will explore a variety of options related to start times and potentially make recommendations for change to the school board, if deemed necessary.
We will provide the instruction and programs to support all students in mastering essential skills and concepts. We believe in tailoring instruction to meet each student’s individual needs.
We will provide all students with the time, support and instruction needed to meet high standards. We believe in meeting every student at every level to help them achieve new heights.
We will set high expectations for all students, challenging them to do their personal best. We believe high expectations result in high student achievement.
With a goal of fostering transparent, two-way communication, Superintendent of Monroe School District, Dr. Fredrika "Deka" Smith, extends an open invitation to families for a monthly "Superintendent's Chat." The first half of the meeting will feature a speaker from the district on predetermined topics that attendees chose last school year. The second half of the meeting, family members can ask questions, provide input and share viewpoints on district procedures, practices and policies. In order to accommodate busy schedules, monthly meetings will be offered both in the morning from 10:00-11:00 a.m. and in the evening from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
The Monroe School District Board of Directors has unanimously approved to move forward in signing a letter of intent to enter into an agreement for the potential lease and/or purchase of a property for use as a school district administrative office. The property, located at 14692 179th Ave SE in Monroe, was formerly the home of the Providence medical facility and consists of 2.84 acres of land with a 31,151 square foot building and associated parking. We have received many questions about this potential move and have addressed many of them in this article.
