Shane Monson – Interim Superintendent

The vision of our school district—To Become the Finest School District in West Central Minnesota! Our mission–To educate and prepare all students for a successful tomorrow through academics, activities, arts and attitude.

Our students are the focus of our work in the Morris Area School District. We are proud of the many fine programs we offer. We also know that continuous development of our programs is necessary in order to prepare students for their futures. Our staff is working hard to make sure that the experiences our students have while in our system are rich and memorable enough to spring them forward into lifelong learning.

Along with our vision and mission, the strategic plan speaks to 8 core values. These values are the foundation of all of our work with our students. They are:


Teamwork * Integrity and Honesty * Safe/Clean/and Secure Environment
* Belief that every student can learn

Respect * Positive Attitude * Accountability * Communication 

While this roadmap of our work is crucial to our success, we also realize the importance of partnering with our families and community. There are numerous examples of wonderful partnerships that we value. We appreciate such strong support. Our students are indeed the beneficiaries of this support.
