DeMuth Optimistic About Ritz’s Superintendent Victory

The Monroe County Community School Corporation superintendent says she is hopeful about the changes Superintendent-elect Glenda Ritz has promised to make.

Following the 2012 elections, Monroe County Community School Corporation Superintendent Judy DeMuth says she is optimistic about the change Superintendent of Public Instruction-elect Glenda Ritz can offer MCCSC schools.

Speaking Wednesday during her annual state of the schools address, DeMuth says she also understands it will take some time to make a transition between the Tony Bennett administration and the Ritz regime.

“We all want to be leaders in education and we all want our students to learn,” DeMuth said. “I think Ritz is going to take some time to understand where we’re at and then better dissect where we need to be moving.”

Jerry Macon, a father of four students at Bloomington schools, attended the address and says he’s impressed with the one-on-one interaction his children receive.

“My wife and I, we both have actually seen the kids engaged and loving what they’re doing,” he said. “We have a great report with teachers, they contact us for any successes or concerns and we really appreciate that.”

Demuth also touted the district’s above-average ACT and SAT scores during the speech.
