Maconaquah On July 1, 1962, Maconaquah School Corporation was formed from six townships in southern Miami County, Indiana. The school corporation continues to serve constituents of six townships in southern Miami County (population: approximately 36,000). The district includes a farming community and nine small towns/communities and includes Grissom Air Reserve Base. Students are primarily transported by school bus from an approximate 8-mile radius. Schools in Maconaquah School Corporation are Pipe Creek Elementary (preschool-1st); Maconaquah Elementary School (2-5); Maconaquah Middle School (6-8); and Maconaquah High School (9-12). Student population for the 2013-14 school year is 2250 with a 52% free/reduced population. The corporation employs 123 certified staff members. The community has several organizations outside of the school environment to serve its population. Some of these are: a youth soccer league; 4-H clubs, softball leagues, church groups, YMCA programs, Little League/Babe Ruth Leagues, and Big Brother/Big Sister Organizations. Educational programs are available through Indiana University/Purdue at Kokomo, Ivy Tech in Peru, and surrounding areas and trade/vocational apprentice schools. Because there is not a centralized population center, the school has recognized the need to be the focal point for community activity. The school’s physical plant is widely-used by school and community groups. Maconaquah offers a full academic program with course offerings meeting the career and educational needs of all students. Advanced level courses are offered at all grade levels in the four core subjects. Remediation classes are also offered for those students with learning and emotional disabilities. Maconaquah School Corporation implemented four eLearning days into the 2013-2014 school year for grades 6-12. While students worked at home, teachers were on campus participating in professional development activities as well as communicating with students and parents via phone, email and other virtual forms of communication. In addition to the planned eLearning days, Maconaquah School Corporation obtained a waiver from the IDOE to use eLearning Days for inclement weather emergencies. Grades K-12 participated in four snow/eLearning days in February. All students and teachers in the corporation worked from home and posted/submitted assignments electronically. The corporation surveyed parents to gain community input to realize successes and challenges of the snow/eLearning days. Statistics show that an overwhelming majority of our patrons support our eLearning efforts.
