Superintendent's Message

Hello Parents, The Morgan School District Board of Education met last night for a financial report, a few festivities, and some policy and curriculum discussions. The first item of business was the auditor’s report, which focused on the district’s financial health and adherence to Federal and State regulations regarding funds. Of special interest in this audit was the district’s management of Covid-related funds. MCSD received the highest rating that the independent auditor gives. Next, MMS Principal Renn Hoopes recognized three outstanding employees: Joni Porter, head secretary; Michelle Morrell, vice principal; and Nathan Richins, P.E. and health teacher. On behalf of the Board, thank you for the hours and energy you put into Morgan’s kids. Our district continues to grow. Fun fact: in the last month, growth in Morgan City itself has exceeded growth in the rest of the county--and another development is currently under review for approval. It will take the cooperation of our whole community to meet the challenges and embrace the opportunities this growth presents. In other business, the Board adopted several policies, including Instructional Goals, Positive Behavior Plan, and Parent Access to Curriculum, for which teachers are working to have all their curriculum available online for the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year. Finally, the board member reports included recognition for many of the extra programs our schools offer, including college application week and Beyond High School 101 at the high school and S.T.E.A.M. Night at Morgan Middle School.  Member Kelly Preece offered special recognition for our maintenance personnel, and President Ron Blunck commended our transportation department, stating, “Our kids are in good hands. Our drivers care deeply about the kids.” A gentle reminder: Covid concerns are down, but other illnesses are spreading. Please keep kids home when they are sick; we will work with them to catch up on their courses.  For those of you who are interested in Covid-19 boosters or vaccinations for yourself or your kids, visit the Weber-Morgan Health Department at http://www.webermorganhealth.org/ Finally, please watch out for crossing guards and for kids in crosswalks and at intersections. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, Douglas Jacobs, Ed.D. Superintendent Morgan School District
