United School District in Midst of 3 Year Goal Setting Process

The United School District is currently in the process of a three-year goal setting plan, which includes finishing up current projects, creating a new priority list, and fulfilling set action plans, says Superintendent Jeff Whitsitt:

“We’ve got all the life safety stuff we have been doing. We will finish that up, but now it is time to start talking about new priority lists. Our elementary buildings are busting at the seams and now we are looking at a projection of an increase of student enrollment new year due to the new housing development that we have to plan for. Two years ago, we wouldn’t have been thinking about that necessarily. Always one of the big concerns in the community is communication, communicating with our public. Social emotional is on everybody’s mind right now too, so we will talk all those things.”

Whitsitt says they are projecting an enrollment increase of 40 to 50 kids from the new housing development currently being constructed in Monmouth.
