District Will Remodel Website

Monmouth-Roseville School Superintendent Paul Woehlke said many people form their first impression of the district from its website. He said it serves as the online ”front porch” for the district. It needs a facelift.

He said, “We just have not kept up with the times in terms of having a website that's modern and user-friendly and informative and up-to-date.”

Woehlke said the website is a vital link between the district and parents and students. He said people interested in the community, especially businesses, frequently visit the website as do job-seekers.

District Will Switch to Sales Tax Revenue for New Building

The Monmouth-Roseville School District originally planned to rely on a fund-raising campaign to come up with the money for a new building.  It will house a weight room and agriculture classes.

Superintendent Paul Woehlke said the estimated cost of the building is $500,000. He said the district will rely on a mix of donations and sales tax revenue to pay for it.

Woehlke said the Sports Boosters and FFA Alumni raised about $60,000. Another $10,000 came from other donations.  That money was spent on construction materials.

School District Works to Improve Literacy of Latino Students

The Monmouth-Roseville School District is committing to improving the literacy of Spanish-speaking students over the next few years.

The district will add a second bi-lingual kindergarten class next fall.

Superintendent Paul Woehlke said the goal is to help Latino students with both their Spanish and English language skills.

He said, ”Both (classrooms) will be teaching literacy in Spanish to the Hispanic students so they learn their native language literacy first.  And research says that's the better approach to a bi-lingual program.”
