District Headlines

  • Community GEM Recognition

    The MCSD is very grateful to Mr. Bob Eadie and his team, including the leadership of Nurse Dana Portillo, and Dr. Mark Whiteside for their in-depth support as active participants on our Back to School Task Force and throughout the pandemic. Our partnership with the Monroe County Department of Health has been of critical importance as we navigated our return to school during COVID-19. Their willingness to dialogue with us regularly has helped with decision making on a daily basis. They are supportive of our students, teachers and staff throughout the district and have prioritized us in their work. We appreciate them for always making the time for us not just this year but every year. They truly are our partners in education and we are honored to recognize them as a Community GEM!

  • MCSD Celebrates Excellence in Financial Reporting

    The Monroe County School District (MCSD) would like to recognize the Finance Department for six consecutive years of excellence in financial reporting. The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report is the financial report audited by the State Auditor General’s Office. The Association of School Business Officials International then reviews the audited financial report and determines whether or not it is eligible for the certificate of excellence. MCSD has had zero findings for the 2014-2019 audits and expects to receive their seventh certificate of excellence when the official report comes out next month as they had no audit findings for the 2020 year. Superintendent Theresa Axford considers this team, “one of the finest in the School District’s history.” Pictured, with the perpetual plaque denoting the accomplishment, are members of the Finance Department including Mabel Balmaceda, Elena Paez, Executive Director Beverly Anders and Austin Tran. Not pictured are Andrea Boggs, Julie Davis, Arelys Farley, Nancy Oleinik.
