Dear MCCSC Students and Families, Welcome to Monroe County Community School Corporation! This Secondary School Guide has been updated to provide essential and relevant information about the many quality programs and educational opportunities found within MCCSC. The past year has been challenging for our students, families, teachers, staff and community. Your support has helped us remain focused on our mission: Empowering students to maximize their educational success to become productive, responsible global citizens. MCCSC is committed to providing the responsive services and assistance necessary to help you and your family be successful. In short, we are here to serve you. We encourage you to review the many educational opportunities for children aged 6 weeks to age 4, along with our amazing elementary school programs serving students in grades K-6. It is imperative that children begin kindergarten ready to learn and with the necessary foundational skills; this is one reason why early childhood education is essential. We hope that you will take advantage of the many early childhood education opportunities that exist at MCCSC and throughout our community. Additionally, with immense feedback and engagement from hundreds of stakeholders as part of a Regional Opportunities Initiative grant, MCCSC is preparing to implement completely our district wide “ReadyUp” Initiative focusing on: 1) Project Based Learning, 2) STEAM & Hands-On Learning, 3) Entrepreneurship, 4) College and Career Awareness, and 5) Community and Industry Partnerships. An overview is included in this guide and more details will be forthcoming. As MCCSC prepares for school re-openings with increased in-person learning options and an anticipated reduction in disruptions in student engagement caused by the pandemic, we are working hard to address the challenges to academic learning experienced over the past eighteen months. As part of our Whole Child Support System each MCCSC school has in place a whole child support team which focuses on academics, behavior and social emotional learning. In conjunction, our counselors, social workers, and mental health professionals are available to provide individualized support as needed; our teachers are preparing individual approaches to help remove barriers to learning with a focus on accelerating the rate of learning for students. Rest assured, in our ongoing efforts to keep our students and staff safe, MCCSC continues to make necessary adaptations to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Please know that we are here as partners in your child’s education. While our guide has many details, if we can be of further assistance, or if we can answer any additional questions, please do not hesitate to let us know. Contact information can be obtained within this guide or by visiting our website at www.mccsc.edu. We wish you the very best this upcoming year! And we thank you for the important role you play in public education.
