Morton CUSD 709 is pleased to be the recipient of federal funding through Title I and Title II programming. Title 1 funding is used to support reading and enhance math instruction. Title 1 funds pay for supplemental  staff members, materials, supplies and equipment. The Title 1 plans are in place at Grundy for targeted students and schoolwide at Jefferson. Title II funding this year (14-15) is used to support an overflow classroom teacher at Lincoln Elementary (this funding can vary from year to year depending upon need and enrollment.) Further questions can be directed to Superintendent Lindsey Hall.


 

ParentsPersonal Computing Devices

District 709 is excited to make personal computing devices an integral part of the educational process.  All fifth through twelveth grade students will be assigned an iPad.    The use of personal computing devices will enhance the development of 21st Century Skills, differentiate instruction to meet each student's needs and allow students to personalize assignments to better match their interests.

Personal computers have added new challenges for parents and teachers.  This short video provides some advice on how to begin to handle these challenges.

Parents, if you have iPad questions, please submit this form and a district employee will respond within a day.
