Monroe Superintendent announces retirement | News
MONROE, MI (Toledo News Now) - Monroe Public School Superintendent Randy Monday announced he would retire at the end of the school year on Tuesday.
Monday has been an employee of the district for 37 years; serving as a teacher, school principal and administrator. Monday began his time in the district long before that though. Monday started attending school in the Monroe Public School district in kindergarten, and graduated from Monroe High School.
“When I started in this position, we were looking at a possible $7.5 million deficit over the next two years but we now have achieved a fund equity of about $2 million. It was not easy to do for any of us because we eliminated nearly 100 positions but I am proud that we were able to protect our curriculum offerings through this process,” Monday said.
Monday said he was most proud of his work which led to the establishment of the Knabusch Math and Science Center at Bolles Harbor. The program currently runs a full schedule of students from every level of Monroe High School. The center also houses classes for students from other districts through an arrangement with the Monroe County Intermediate School District.
“I’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with our Board of Education and am thankful for their support. Even though my contract runs into 2015, I have decided to leave now so I can become a ‘full-time grandpa’ to my two wonderful grandchildren,” Monday said. “I’ve enjoyed nearly 40 years in education so now it is family time. This is the right time for me.”
