Montague Area Public Schools is part of several consortiums that provide supporting programs for our students and community. Collaboration among school districts broadens and strengthens services that districts might not otherwise be able to offer.

Their services include medical assistance, food assistance, daycare assistance, utility assistance, etc. During the school year, office hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Summer office hours vary.
