    District survey to measure community’s desire to help, Published February 01 2010

    “Morris Area seeking people who can lend their talents and expertise to learning. Click on ‘Morris Area Community Survey’ icon below to see the survey…
    ….The survey should arrive in residents’ mail, or they can find a copy at:
    The Sun Tribune also has a copy of the survey accompanying this story.
    Residents also can contact Sharon Rae Martin, the district’s Community Partnership Coordinator, at (320) 589-4840.
    Putting together a database of volunteers is one way of streamlining the process.
    “That way we can match up a need with someone who has the skills and schedule to work with that,” Monson said.
    The relationships could be beneficial for everyone. The community learns more about – and gets more involved with – the school district, and students gain mentors and more information about possible career paths, Metzger said.
    “There are a lot of opportunities, especially for retired people,” Metzger said. “Maybe there are engineers, farmers, business people – there are highly technical people out there that could offer a lot to students. The opportunity for social interaction with students is invaluable for both sides.”
    The district’s Strategic Planning committees and their work is not too dependent on money. That’s an important aspect of their work since the state’s current and future budget projections don’t bode well for school funding.
    “If a big budget crisis comes, strategic planning could lead us through that myriad of decisions,” Monson said. “We can made the best decisions based on what the money allows. Districts have to continue to work smarter and strategic planning is one way that we can keep working smarter…..”
