Morton CUSD 709 is pleased to be the recipient of federal funding through Title I and Title II programming. Title 1 funding is used to support reading and enhance math instruction. Title 1 funds pay for supplemental  staff members, materials, supplies and equipment. The Title 1 plans are in place at Grundy for targeted students and schoolwide at Jefferson. Title II funding this year  is used to support an overflow classroom teacher at Lincoln Elementary (this funding can vary from year to year depending upon need and enrollment.) Further questions can be directed to Superintendent Jeff Hill.


Welcome Thank You For Visiting District 709

Public Act 099-0922

Published: January 12, 2018

In compliance with Public Act 099-0922 all Morton District 709  facilities built prior to January 1, 2000, where pre-K through fifth grade students are present, were tested for lead in the water.  The testing was performed by Ideal Environmental Engineering, Inc.  As required by the act, the results of the testing have been shared with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).  The level requiring action that is recommended by the US Environmental Protection Agency for school outlets is 20 parts per billion (ppb).  However, the IDPH mitigation requirement is significantly more stringent.  IDPH has set a minimum laboratory detection limit at 2ppb.  

As required by the act, results have been posted on the district website ( for public viewing.  In addition, any building that had a finding greater than 5 ppb has individually notified parents in writing which is also required under the act.

Morton District 709  administration and maintenance staff have been in contact with both IDPH and IDEAL Environmental Engineering.  Based on recommendations provided by both, mitigation and water management efforts are in progress.  Many of the identified areas were sinks that are not used for food preparation or drinking.  No drinking fountains were affected. Any kitchen sinks that may have been identified over 2ppb are now being used for handwashing only. All affected areas will mitigated and will be retested.

Morton District 709 received a parent request to review the specific levels of the drinking fountains that were tested. We have attached those results below.

Morton District 709 remains committed to protecting student health and will continue to take all actions necessary to do so.
