West Clark Community Schools: Growing up and out

Superintendent Monty Schneider talks about challenges and benefits in the coming school year


SELLERSBURG — Overall, how do you feel about this school year?

I feel good about it. I’ve been at this a long time and I’m always excited when another year starts. But it does not seem like the first month or so gets any easier.

Getting ready for school and with the balanced calendar that just about everyone in the area is on now, certainly compressed the summer where we had less than two months to get ready for the next school year. It’s not going to get any better next year, so that poses some challenges. A long time ago when I started, summers were a little more relaxed than they are now. I know the maintenance and custodial staff felt like they were really just pushed this summer with probably a couple weeks less time than they’ve had. It’s going to be a race every summer to get ready for the next school year.
