Welcome to the Marion County School District 

Our goals in the Marion County School District are to meet the needs of all learners, to ensure that every student reaches his or her full potential, and to pledge that our graduates are prepared for life. We promise to maintain a clear and shared sense of purpose focused on student education; create high achieving learning environments; and to provide opportunities for each and every one of our children. Marion County School District continues to be recognized for excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts, and that commitment remains, in spite of state and federal budget cuts. The Board of Education and the District's administrators work closely with staff, parents, and community members to deliver the educational excellence our students deserve and our community expects. The recognitions and achievements are the result of board and administrator leadership, teacher and staff dedication, community support, and parent involvement. Whether you are a member of the current graduating class or just beginning your educational experience in preschool or kindergarten, every student in the District can count on each year to be filled with learning, laughter, and life-enriching experiences.
