Dickens Christmas Celebration Reading Booth

On Friday, November 28, Marion County Public Schools will have a reading booth set up downtown for the Dickens Christmas celebration. We will be set up in the corner of Joe’s Deli on Main Street. In conjunction with all of the festivities that evening, we will be encouraging parents, guardians, and loved ones to read to children 20 minutes per day (R20) and “Give the gift of reading this holiday season"! We look forward to seeing you there!

Coach's Corner Newsletter, Volume 1 Issue 2

Across the Marion County Public School system, teachers are hard at work teaching students the Common Core Standards. One very beneficial strategy that is being used is providing students with feedback. Research indicates that effective feedback can increase student motivation, build on prior knowledge, and help students reflect on what they've learned; hence promoting student achievement. Click here to read the full newsletter.

Background Checks for Employment

Beginning Monday, November 17, 2014, ALL fingerprints will be processed at the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Please pick up your fingerprint card at the Marion County Board of Education. The cost is $20.00 for classified staff and $36.50 for certified staff. We accept cash or check. (Please make checks payable to the Marion County Board of Education.) Fingerprint cards must be taken to the Sheriff's office located at 223 North Spalding Avenue, Lebanon, KY for processing. Please call to make an appointment at 270-692-3051. Note – the Sheriff’s office charges a $10.00 fee. RETURN the completed card to the Marion County Board of Education. The Personnel department will notify you once the background check is clear. If you are currently employed with another district, please obtain a copy and submit to our personnel department. If there has been a gap of employment for six months, you must submit a new background check.

Inclement Weather Protocol

If conditions are obvious by mid to early evening that the weather will not allow for school the next day, we will make the cancellation call that night by 9:00 p.m. However, when the weather deteriorates overnight, district transportation staff begin checking the roads at 3:30 a.m. that morning. They will also contact local road crews, as well as the police department to pinpoint local trouble areas. By 5:30 a.m. a decision will be made regarding school cancellation.
