Students get more days off next year
MONROE - The Monroe school district will continue to have early release Mondays next year, but some tweaking of the calendar is bringing back a few no-school days throughout the year. The Monroe Education Association polled teachers about the school calendar for 2014-15 and endorsed a switch away from a calendar that this year had 72 straight school days scheduled between winter and spring breaks. This is the first year the Monroe district opted to have early release on most Mondays in lieu of inservice days for teachers throughout the school year.
