Welcome to MPCUD #23

Interim Superintendent: Mr. Phil Shelton 

Update from the Superintendent (3/1/2019):

MPGS Air Conditioning

The MPGS air conditioning project, Phase I has begun with a bid awarded to E.L. Pruitt Co., Springfield IL, for $238,000. This first phase will install A/C in the elementary “pod” classrooms and the Learning Center. The A/C project at MPGS will be paid with the 1% sales tax revenue. Bids are now being taken for Phase II of the A/C project for MPGS.

MPHS Construction

The first steps in the high school building addition project are being taken in March with the award of a contract at the March school board meeting for final asbestos abatement in the 1912-1926 section (required by state regulations). We will also award a contract for 6 portable classrooms at the March school board meeting. The portable classrooms will be used in the 2019-2020 & 2020-2021 school terms, until the new addition is completed. It is anticipated that bids for demolition of the 1912-1926 sections will be reviewed in March and a contract awarded in April, with the demolition to be done in June/July of this year.

Student Achievement

As we head into the “achievement testing” part of the school term, I want to encourage all parents to stress the importance (to your kids) of “giving your best effort” on achievement tests. A part of school funding from the state is based on student improvement in academic achievement, as well as the high school graduation rate. Primarily, the school district wants to know the academic areas where our students show improvement, as well as those academic areas where student achievement is not meeting our goals.
