Mt. Pleasant School Board Meeting Report June 10th, 2024

The Mount Pleasant Community School Board met in regular session Monday evening for their June meeting.

When it comes to RAGBRAI, the superintendent stated that things are moving ahead. There will be camping on central campus, as well as the practice field south of Maple Leaf, the baseball field, the field south of the High School, and Middle School will be used for a group of disabled riders. According to one board member, the cost to shower is $8, which will be a nice donation to the district.

Summer school began on Monday, and the principals of each school provided a brief report. In total, there are well over 200 students registered for additional education this summer. For high school students, there is a good mix of people finishing credits and exploring classes that they did not take during the school year. The Middle School is hosting grades K-8 right now, due to the transition to grade-alike elementary, and Mr. Adams pointed out that the first day went well. For the elementary school, 92 students are registered and are offered classes such as reading, math, and stem.

Summer school will continue for another two and a half weeks from 8:30-11:30 during the school week.
