MONROE - The Monroe school board approved student academic standards for the 2015-16 school year at a meeting Monday. "The good thing is, I mean, everything we've heard from whether it's students, parents, et cetera ... is that these standards are certainly a cut above what we were testing on before and what we were teaching to them before," board member Bob Erb said. The district will adopt a combination of three standards: the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards, Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
