Monticello Superintendent on Next School Year

Monticello Schools Superintendent is optimistic that in-person learning will be able to return in the fall.


Dr. Vic Zimmerman, Monticello Superintendent, indicates the district is currently planning curriculum for the upcoming school year. He is optimistic in-person learning can return under Phase Four guidelines.



Monticello schools have put together a work-study group comprised of teachers and administrators that are reviewing and revising the district's remote learning plan. Dr. Zimmerman says remote learning may have to be implemented if cases start to rise.



ISBE is expected to release its guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year very soon, some speculate as soon as this week. Once they do, Dr. Zimmerman says they will be able to narrow their plans to fit what is allowed.



Monticello Schools will start on September 1 due to the district's construction projects. Dr. Zimmerman believes those couple of weeks could give them a leg up on refining their approach to bringing kids back to school.
