A Message from the Superintendent

Dear MCCSC Students and Families,

Welcome to Monroe County Community School Corporation! 

MCCSC has a long history of supporting local, traditional public PK-12 schools.  This support includes active participation in our public school education by collaborating with teachers on the education of children in our community, volunteering in our schools, hiring our student interns and graduates, providing important words and letters of encouragement to our teachers and staff for the important work they do, and financially supporting our schools.

Now more than ever, public school advocacy is imperative.  MCCSC citizens have a long history of going above and beyond to support the important work being done; this tangible support includes referenda in 2010, 2016 & 2022. This support allows us to remain focused on our mission: Empowering students to maximize their educational success to become productive, responsible global citizens. It is an honor to work in a community that continually demonstrates strong support for and tremendous pride in its public schools.

To meet the district's mission, MCCSC Board of School Trustees approved a 2021-2025 Strategic Plan that focuses our priorities and goals on Equity, Diversity, Funding, and Communication.  During the 2022-2023 school year, school leaders gathered questions, concerns and comments from members of the public, staff and Board members on each identified goal/priority.  During a monthly presentation, updates were publicly shared regarding the work being done to help meet the rigorous goals of our strategic plan.  Throughout the 2023-2024 school year, additional monthly conversations are occurring that will develop clear metrics through a data dashboard to measure the successes from the outcomes identified during the last school year.  To view the MCCSC Strategic Plan and see videos and accompanying information, click here.

In June 2023, the MCCSC Board of School Trustees passed a resolution asking MCCSC registered voters to support a Fall 2023 family-centered and community-focused referendum.  The referendum is designed to continue to expand quality of life goals established by our community (see Bloomington Economic Development Corporation’s Economic Vitality Project - and create more equitable learning opportunities for students by eliminating financial barriers for families.  In short, the MCCSC is asking homeowners to consider an overall increase in taxes of approximately $50 for an average home valued at $250,000 to provide free and affordable pre-K, free three-year-old preschool for qualifying families, eliminate all textbook, instructional materials, and supply costs for families, and eliminate all testing, certification and career education fees for families.  Additional details can be found by clicking on the 2023 Referendum webpage here.

MCCSC continues its tradition of being an established leader in today’s educational landscape.  We continue to be one of the highest performing school districts in Indiana while remaining one of the 10% lowest school tax rates in the State.  We have much more to do and I know that together we will continue to accomplish great things.

Thank you for the important role you play in public education and your continued support of public education!
