July 2019

Dear Monrovia Unified School District community,
Monrovia Unified is committed to the continued success of our scholars, a goal reflected through work done at the District level and at our facilities this summer.
Our Board of Education approved the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the 2019-20 school year. The LCAP focuses on goals such as high academic achievement and increased student engagement. Major actions outlined in the LCAP are access to experienced teachers, high-quality instructional materials and well-maintained facilities.
During July, the track and artificial turf field at Monrovia High School underwent a full renovation, ensuring that MHS athletes, scholars, and the community can enjoy the field for 10 to 15 more years! In addition, air-conditioning systems at Plymouth Elementary School and Clifton Middle School were replaced.
Continuing on with the exciting news, the District received notice that Monrovia High School was listed on the 2018-19 California Honor Roll.  We are proud of our students and educators from MHS and are thankful for this recognition!
Lastly, the City of Monrovia started repairing and replacing crumbling sidewalks in front of Monrovia High School this month. The project includes tree removal, concrete cutting, and curb removal; the city has indicated the trees will be replanted when the project is finished. For more information, please contact the City of Monrovia Public Works Department at (626) 932-5575. We look forward to the improvements beautifying the paths at MHS!
School starts back up on Aug. 14, and we are excited to see the successes our students will achieve this year! From our intensive arts program to dual-language immersion, from robotics to Code to the Future, Monrovia Unified offers a deep array of engaging curricular options to engage our students’ interests and spark their creativity.

Monrovia Unified Renovates Track and Field at Wildcat Stadium

Monrovia High School’s Wildcat Stadium was upgraded this summer, and the project was completed just in time to welcome back athletes and scholars for the new school year.

A total renovation of the track and field at Monrovia High School took place this summer, which included smoothing out the field to eliminate uneven areas, a complete turf replacement, and an upgrade of the rubber pellet infill to a cool-fill product, which decreases the temperature of the turf. Communication boxes were also relocated to outer parts of the field, ensuring the continued safety of students.

Monrovia High School Recognized as High-achieving School

Monrovia High School’s recognition on the 2018-19 California Honor Roll will be displayed with an Honor Roll banner that recognizes MHS as a model for other districts and schools.

As part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are achieving student outcomes, Monrovia High School was recognized by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) with a place on the 2018-19 California Honor Roll for strong student achievement and measures of college readiness. In California, the CBEE is based on objective achievement data from the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress.
