De Jure and De Facto
High Marq Environmental Charter is an instrumentality of the Montello School District. Because of Act 10, certified teaching staff in our district are governed by a handbook rather than a union contract. The handbook allows for a large degree of flexibility and autonomy, largely negating the need for an MOU.
