Milan Billboard

Due to the snow related cancellation of school yesterday (11/17/14), our snow make-up date will be on Friday, February 13th. This date was originally scheduled as a 1/2 teacher work day (no students).

Additionally, I am asking you to take a minute out of your busy schedule to fill out a survey that will provide Milan Community Schools with invaluable data regarding our 21st Century Technology initiative. Speak Up, a national online research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow®, gives individuals the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning 21st century education and technology. Participating schools and districts can access their data online, free-of-charge in February 2015.

Here is the link to the survey - Simply type in our zip code, 47031, and click on your students’ school.

There is also a link to the survey on our corporation website - just click on the Speak Up icon.

Thank you for your help in making Milan Community Schools (MES, MMS, MHS) A Triangle of Excellence!

Dear Parents,

If you are planning to move to Milan or would like to enroll your child or children in our schools, we would welcome your application.  For families residing outside our district, there is no longer any transfer tuition.  Your only responsibility is transportation.  If you are interested in joining our school community, please fill out our  application Transfer Request. We accept transfer students year-round, but it is best educationally to try to enroll your child at the beginning of a marking period.  Thanks.
