Dream Believe Achieve

...Continuing the Transformation

Woodworth Elementary &
Monroe Magnet Middle School Merger
IUSD is on the move! We are excited to share the news of a new development on the road to transform IUSD. Under the new leadership of Dr. Melendez, IUSD will be merging Woodworth Elementary School and Monroe Magnet Middle School, making the Monroe Campus a TK-8 elementary school.
Opportunity to Transform IUSD
Why is IUSD merging these two schools?

The primary reason for this merger is to reorganize the delivery of educational programs and services for the benefit of IUSD student success. New programs and educational opportunities will be introduced which align with the district strategic plans.

Beginning in February 2018, a committee of staff, students, and parents from both campuses will be involved in a process to re-think, re-design, open a new TK-8th grade school. This new and improved campus will open in the Fall 2018.

The merging of these two schools will also make it possible for IUSD to reduce operating expenses and create an opportunity to expand our community partnerships and generate district income.
