Welcome from the Superintendent:
Welcome to the Monett R-1 School District website! I am certainly glad that you have taken the time to visit our site, and it is our hope that you will find it useful and informative and that it will encourage you to come back and visit us again. It is our goal to keep the information provided within this website current and pertinent to viewers’ needs. As you browse through our website, we would encourage you to provide us feedback if you see things that may assist us in providing a better user experience.
The Monett R-1 School District mission is to “prepare students for their future.” In accomplishing this mission, we aspire always to be “Student Focused” and “Future Driven” in our efforts. I cannot think of anything more important in the business of educating young people than centering our focus upon the unique needs of each student and cultivating a culture of continuous improvement that is focused upon meeting student needs of the future.
As you are fully aware, the Monett R-1 School District has been very progressive in recent years in providing instructional technology within each classroom for student use. In 2012, we launched the “1:World…Cubs Going Global” initiative that has placed a laptop in every high school student’s hands in an effort to improve student learning and to prepare students for their future. In 2014, we made this this same opportunity a reality for our middle school students and in 2015 we extended those opportunities to our Intermediate School campus (grades 5 and 6). This year we have increased the amount of technology available in grades K-4 so that all students have a dedicated device at their disposal on a daily basis.
We view the educating of our youth as a collaborative effort between home and school. This website should serve as a tool to assist in that process. We encourage you to be involved in your son/daughter’s learning during this coming year, and it is our goal that this website will assist you in becoming more informed about what is happening and, at the classroom level, provide you with helpful links and files that will help you to support classroom learning at home.
I am excited about the possibilities for the Monett R-1 School District for the 2016-2017 school year! We have great things planned at all grade levels and are eager to get started. I hope that you will visit our website again and, as I mentioned above, please do not hesitate to contact us with ideas that you might have that would improve our website.

Welcome from the Assistant Superintendent:
Welcome to Monett R-1 Schools, the home of the Cubs! It is an exciting time in education and I am honored to be joining a district with a statewide reputation for excellence and innovation. Monett schools have a tradition of preparing students for their futures, and that is still true today. With the help of dedicated teachers, our students are gaining the skills they will need to compete on a global scale. To keep pace, our classrooms are beginning to look a little different from the classrooms many of us attended. Students now have access to powerful technology that allows them to connect with other learners around the world, and learn anywhere at anytime. Students can work on homework, participate in class discussions, conduct research and share their findings with the world all from their living room. Learning no longer needs to be confined within the walls of the classroom. Yes, it is an exciting time to be a Monett Cub! Thank you for visiting our website and we if we can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
