STM Board forming a Community Financial Advisory Committee
The School Town of Munster Strategic Plan (STMSP) sets forth specific benchmarks related to the fiscal responsibility and transparency of the district.  The School Town of Munster wishes to assemble and utilize the expertise of community members as a cost effective means to achieving specific fiscal objectives through the establishment of the Community Financial Advisory Committee (CFAC). Board Policy 9140 provides a framework for the creation of such a committee.

The CFAC will be comprised of five, Board-appointed community stakeholders. Once the CFAC is created by Board vote, the availability of non-paid CFAC vacancies will be advertised on the website for a period of 2-weeks during which time interested individuals may submit resumes. Members will be appointed based on professional qualifications provided via resume. Applicants must be Munster residents and possess a documented professional background in finance and/or accounting with preferential consideration given to individuals with a professional background in school fund accounting or municipal finance. The Superintendent, Director of Financial Operations and Board will review all resumes and credentials.  Interested individuals must submit resumes to Karen Demitroulas via email, mail or in-person by Friday, May 1, 2015.

For more information, please refer to the Community Financial Advisory Committee guide.

Welcome to the School Town of Munster!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School Town of Munster website.  As you visit each of our school pages and the district page, you will notice very quickly that our schools are recognized for their highly qualified staff and the high performance of our outstanding students.   Our schools have been honored for excellence at the state and national levels.   From an elementary school that is a National Blue Ribbon School to the high school that has an exemplary Advanced Placement program, our students are provided with numerous opportunities to grow, learn and find success in their academic careers in the School Town of Munster.   It is our belief that every student will be educated to develop a global view of our world, and the opportunities that they will have are limitless. 

The School Town of Munster provides many extracurricular opportunities for students to participate at an academic level and an athletic level.  We believe that students should develop leadership skills and be actively involved in our global community.  Students take part in many clubs offered at the high school and middle school.  We provide after school programs in music for our elementary students.  Our student athletes are highly competitive on the sporting fields, but more importantly, in the classroom.  It is our belief that students should be provided a well-rounded education that helps them cultivate their interests.

 I hope that you will check out our Munster Advantage comparison chart and use it when you are looking for a new school home and a new community to live.  I believe that the Munster schools are second to none when it comes to academic and extracurricular opportunities for our students.  I am also very proud to state that our community is one of the most supportive in the State of Indiana when it comes to its schools.  We have a strong group of community and parent volunteers who serve on the Munster Education Foundation, Booster Clubs, PTOs, and in the classrooms.  The support and commitment to have world class schools by our community, administration, teachers and staff sets Munster apart and above other schools.  We are very proud that our focus will always be on helping our students succeed by “Teaching Today for Tomorrow”.

Thank you for visiting the School Town of Munster.

Dr. Jeff Hendrix

Hammond Elementary was named when Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized 337 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014 based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. These schools demonstrate that all students can achieve to high levels.
