Admission procedures

**Update - April 20, 2020**

Families interested in enrolling their child in the Marion City Schools Preschool Program should call Wendy VanSickle at 740-223-4416 from 8am-4pm Monday through Friday. Those registering will be asked for their name, their child’s name who they wish to enroll, the child's birthdate, their mailing address, phone number and email address. A link will be shared in mid-May to allow families to complete the registration process online. Preschool building assignments will be determined at a later time once all paperwork is processed.


In order for your child to be enrolled in our preschool program, you must meet the following requirements:

Your child must be 4 years old before August 1.

Children ages 3-5, identified as having special needs, may be enrolled in a preschool program after a multi-factored evaluation is completed. If you believe your child has special needs, please contact the Marion City Schools Student Services Department.
