At yesterday's Marion County School Board workshop, Marions United co-founder Ray Seaman presented our recommendations for the "Independent Citizens Financial Oversight Committee" authorized by the passage of the one mill school funding referendum earlier this month.
Where do candidates for school board stand on the issue of Marion County's critical school funding referendum? We wanted to provide voters a comprehensive overview of where candidates stood on this important issue and why. We're proud to announce our School Funding Referendum Scorecard.
Did you know Marion County has more than 2,000 children identified as homeless? Since 2002, Marion County Public Schools' "Stuff The Bus" program has helped thousands of homeless and needy students get the school supplies they need to learn. This year, the program aims to help 2,500 students.
