Less than two months into her job as the superintendent of the Monroe County Community School Corporation, Judy DeMuth is laying the groundwork for the future.
During a Chamber of Commerce luncheon MCCSC Superintendent, Judith DeMuth this years agenda focuses on student achievement, global competitiveness and ensuring safety for students and staff in school communities.
With 10,700 students in the corporation, the district wants to increase student performance.
“Every school corporation in the nation and particularly in Indiana is focused on test scores and improving student performance,” DeMuth said. “We can look at it as working with every child and trying to make sure they do their best. Then it doesn’t become so overwhelming.”
DeMuth said another goal is to meet the needs of every single child in the academic areas and to strengthen their their needs, so they will be able to perform better on assessment models.
DeMuth plans to organize a state of the school address in mid-October to discuss school changes.
