Construction on schedule, in budget

Sean Lewis, ICS Senior Project Manager, reported construction of the new Mora High School is on schedule and within budget. Through the rest of November and into December, the work will be completing underground foundations. Soon work will begin on erecting pre-cast concrete walls and installation of the roof.  The building will be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2023. 

Learning Recovery Plans in place

“Kids have lost a lot of academic learning time,” said Mora Public Schools Superintendent Dan Voce. The Mora School District has developed a three-year plan to recover “lost learning” during the distance and hybrid learning. The plan includes adding “interventionist” staff to focus on students that are far behind, expanding summer school and the purchase of social-emotional learning curriculum.  

No School January 17

The school board amended the school calendar to make Jan. 17 a non-school day for Mora students. The day will be a staff work day only; students will not be required to make this day up. This is different than what appears on the school calendar that was distributed in August.
