JUNIORS!! It is time to apply for the CEO program again if you are interested for the 2018-2019 school year! CEO is a year long course that works with local businesses to create project based experiences for students by providing funding, expertise, and one-on-one mentoring. The class meets 1 1/2 hours before school at businesses in Macoupin County. If you are interested in applying to be part of the CEO program, the applications are in Mrs. Kozsdiy's office.

A Note From The Superintendent's Desk -
A Note From The Superintendentís Desk
The Notice of Proposed Property Tax Increase is in the paper this week. The Mt. Olive School District is asking for the same tax rate as it did last year.
It is very difficult to determine how much the tax payer will pay in taxes because EAV (Equalized Assessed Value) is not controlled by the school district. If you property value goes up, then the additional taxes that are generated from that would go to the school district.
I want to thank the community for itís wonderful support of our school system and assure you that we are doing everything we can to keep our local educational costs down. It is our sincere goal that the districtís tax rate will not go up this year. If the EAV of our school district does not decline, then the rate will not increase.
