I am proud to serve the Marion City Schools as Superintendent. We remain committed to preparing students to be productive and caring members of society. As early as elementary school, we stress not only academics but life skills as well. Our overarching goal is to provide every opportunity for every student to be successful.
Our framework establishes goals to make sure each student is career ready. Career ready includes possession of whatever skills are necessary to be successful in college, immediately enter the workforce or enlist in our armed forces. We want each student to graduate with not only a diploma but acceptance into college, a job training program, the military, or a high-paying, in-demand job.
I believe that every child can and wants to learn. We are committed to improving academic achievement for all of our students. The indicators we are given that measure achievement are set 80% for our district to be considered proficient. We will continue to look at ways to improve until the needs of EVERY child are met.
Our philosophy focuses on student leadership, personalized learning, research-based reading instruction and career readiness. Our entire staff plays a part in our commitment to educate students in a way that reflects the needs of our families and our community. We encourage their input to make sure we remain on that path.
