On Wednesday, Aug. 18, Morgan hosted Glenn J Kimber for a community question-and-answer period to learn about a new school that will soon be moving to Morgan City.  In attendance were Morgan Mayor Jim Egbert, Councilwoman Shelly Betz, Councilman Ray Little, as well as residents interested in learning more about the history and curriculum of this private education center that will soon be offering what is being considered a God- and country-centered educational alternative to the parents of Morgan county and surrounding areas.

How important is the education of our children.  In our elementary schools we have one class with 35 children, six with 30 or more and 9 with 26 to 29 and our enrollment is growing every year.  How effective can a teacher be with so many students at this critical stage of their development?  I’ve had 10 boys in our scout troop and can’t imagine how a teacher can give adequate attention to 30 students.

Dear Editor:

As we grow closer to the end of another school year, I wanted to take the time to pay tribute to all of our wonderful and dedicated teachers within the district.  They are truly professionals who have made the decision to center their careers on the betterment of our youth.

Hardly a day goes by now that Mountain Green Elementary School does not receive a call from interested parents who want to check out our school system.  They are interested in buying homes in this area or wanting to build in our beautiful county. Working within such a wonderful school with tremendous parent support, great teachers and, most of all, terrific children, it is not hard to give them a stellar report of our school.

What is happening with Special Education in Morgan School District?  Federal law 94-142 Idea mandates the practice of special education.  Each state dictates how they will adopt and implement educational practices.  Then each district utilizes the guidelines to design programs that are mandated for individual schools, classrooms, and students. This can be tricky in both large and small districts because of size and funding, so creativity and intelligence combined makes it work!  Synchronizing education between what is happening in the regular education classes, special education classes, related service providers and at home, is as crucial as a balanced diet.

The mission statement of the Common Core is as follows: The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
