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.

On behalf of the Morton Community Unit District 709 Board of Education, Faculty, staff, and administration I want to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are excited to begin our work together as we help every student reach his/her full potential. The strong support of our community has enabled us to:

  2. Hire 28 new faculty through a competitive and robust hiring process characterized by hundreds of applicants interested in working for  Morton 709
  3. Provide comprehensive curricular and extra curricular offerings, including enrichment opportunities in our elementary schools, a new STEM career class at MJHS, and numerous college credit opportunities at Morton High School
Please let us know how we can help you and your student(s) as we begin the new year!
