    “This is Your Time!”

    Muncie Central High School


    It is with much excitement that we announce the creation of Muncie Central Early College. This is an opportunity, in partnership with Ivy Tech Community College, for our students to earn a Liberal Arts Associate Degree or complete their General Education Core while they are in high school. This is a great option for students who want to earn their associate's degree, those who want to enter the workforce as well as for those students who want to earn their bachelor's degree. 



    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of Muncie Community Schools:

    The Muncie Community Schools over the last decade has been filled with both great successes and extremely difficult challenges.  As our enrollment has declined over this same span of time, we have consolidated and/or closed several schools, yet have attempted to maintain the best possible programming and courses that have brought us positive local, state, and national recognition.

    The past few months have been filled with town hall meetings and work sessions. After an in depth review of all pertinent information, the school board members voted on November 18, 2013, for a school merger.  While emotions and questions of tradition run high, the Board of School Trustees has determined the best possible solution to a very difficult situation.  Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, the district will maintain one high school, two middle schools, nine elementary schools, and one career center.  Programs housed outside of these facilities will continue to function at their current locations.

    Every child we serve has unlimited potential to learn. As your superintendent, it is my responsibility to ensure that every student in our district has equal access to high quality schools with great principals, great teachers, and a positive culture for teaching and learning.  I know we are just beginning this journey, but we are on our way………………….……and it’s time we unite our efforts as one district, one city, ONE MUNCIE!

    As we continue with the transition to one high school, please allow me to assure you of the following facts:


    TRANSITION TEAM AND COMMITTEES

    Fact: Numerous committees are now being structured to assist with the transition.  The members of these committees will consist of students and all stakeholders with the Muncie Community Schools. Once these committees have been announced, the transition team will welcome parents and community members that have an interest in serving on the planning groups.


    CLASS SIZES

    Fact: Class sizes at the high school will continue to follow the school board guidelines, 28 or fewer students.  Occasionally a content class grows to 29 or 30 students.  These are rare instances and will continue to be an exception at Muncie Central High School.


    FACULTY

    Fact:  The vast majority of current teachers at Southside High School will transition with the Southside students to the merged school.  However, current Southside students may have current Central teachers or vice versa.         



    ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

    Fact:  The curriculum will be strengthened through additional course offerings and academic programs that meet the needs of all of our students. (i.e., Early College, Advanced Placement, etc.)

    We will explore the possibility of becoming a candidate for International Baccalaureate.

     

    2015 GRADUATES

    Fact: The 2015 graduates will be given the option of receiving a diploma from Southside High School dated June, 2015.  This will be a one year opportunity.



    TROPHIES, AWARDS, PICTURES, MEMORABILIA

    Fact: No trophies, awards, or memorabilia from Southside’s history will be destroyed or discarded. They will be on display as determined by a transition sub-committee led by the principal.

    There will be input from committee members and other stakeholders on where and how to display these treasures.


    ATHLETICS

    Fact:  All coaching and extra-curricular positions will be open for an application process.  No current athlete at either high school will be discriminated against.


    BAND/MUSIC

    Fact: We will continue the outstanding band and music programs that currently exist. Planning will begin immediately to combine, unite and enhance the rich tradition of both band programs.

    We realize that information, which isn’t all factual, is circulating utilizing social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and personal editorials as well as other websites.  Please know that this administration, teachers and staff want the very best school district possible for every child that enters our doors.  We are legally bound and morally obligated to give the best and most accurate information possible to teachers, parents, students and community members. That is our mission and promise to each and every parent and student.

    This will be a continuous process to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year.  I sincerely hope that you will work with us to make this merger as smooth as possible and encourage your student to take advantage of this new opportunity.

    Sincerely,
    M. Tim Heller
    Superintendent
