  • Big News for our Monticello Community

    At last night’s meeting, the Monticello School Board approved a change to start and end times for all schools in Monticello School District, beginning with the 2024-25 school year. The new times are as follows:


    • Kindergarten:  8:00 a.m. – 2:10 p.m.

    • Elementaries:  7:50 a.m. - 2:20 p.m.

    • Nature Based Education: 8:00 a.m. - 2:10 p.m. 

    • Middle School: 8:15 a.m. – 2:50 p.m.

    • High School: 8:15 a.m. – 2:55 p.m.


    As a district, we believe this change has the power to positively impact our students of all ages and to create a better school community experience for all. Please check out this video for more highlights and thoughts on the process from a variety of community voices! Additional resources from the process are available at the conclusion of this email as well.

    As noted in the video above, we fully understand that this change will also bring new challenges to a number of our families. As we move through this school year and toward the 2024-25 year, we are committed to working with the community to solve those challenges together and to make this change as seamless as possible for every family in Monticello School District.

  • GYO Scholarships Available

    Grow Your Own (GYO) programs are partnerships between approved educator preparation programs in Minnesota, school districts or charter schools, and community organizations that recruit and prepare local community members (e.g., parents, para educators, non-certified school staff, high school students) to enter the teaching profession and possibly teach in their communities. Monticello Public Schools has received a GYO grant and will use the funding to provide scholarships to qualified applicants over the next 5 years.  Scholarships will range from $10,000 - $20,000 per year per applicant, depending upon the level of interest and MDE guidelines for funding.

    Please complete this form if you are interested in becoming a licensed educator and would like to be considered for this scholarship.

  • School Start Times Town Hall Meetings

    As we continue to consider a potential change to school start and end times for the 2024-25 school year and beyond, we have heard from numerous community members that would like more information and additional opportunities to share feedback.

    In order to accommodate these opportunities, we will be pushing back the scheduled Monticello School Board vote from the July 17th meeting to the August 21st meeting. This will allow us to continue discussion at both the July 17th and August 7th board meetings; we will also hold two Town Hall Meetings to provide information and respond to questions regarding the potential change. The Town Hall meetings will take place:

    • Thursday, July 13 at 5 p.m. at Monticello Middle School Auditorium

    • Wednesday, July 26 at 5 p.m. at Monticello Middle School Auditorium
