Welcome to MPCUD #23

Interim Superintendent: Mr. Phil Shelton 

Update from the Superintendent (12/10/2018):

High School Addition

The planning for the high school addition has been ongoing for several months.  The question everyone wants to ask: When will the construction start and when will the new addition be completed?  Final floor plans will be completed soon.  A period of time to allow for specific drawings and bidding documents will determine a “bid opening” and award of a construction contract in late spring of 2019.  A practical goal of completion of construction will probably be in December 2020.  One goal is to see the new entry for the high school to have an early start.  The new entry would be in the front of the 1963 gym.  This part of the project will include the new front entrance, office areas for the building secretaries, principal & guidance counselor.  Demolition of the 1912 & 1926 additions should be this summer, with construction beginning in early fall 2019.  Another goal is to retain part of the 1912 Mt. Pulaski High School limestone entry and the 1912 cornerstone, as well as the Abe Lincoln statue.

MPGS Air Conditioning

We are expecting to receive bids in late December or early January.  Some work on installation can begin soon.  This project will be done in phases.  The elementary pod area and learning center will be the first area of work.  It will probably be the most challenging, also. 

MPGS Girls Basketball

Congratulations to the 7th grade girls’ basketball team and Coach Jamie Anderson on their 3rd place finish in the IESA State Tournament on December 6th.  Also, congratulations to the 8th grade girls’ basketball team who made it to the Elite 8!
