Marion Elementaries Officially Redistricting

by Sammy Edmonds posted May 22 2014 4:28PM
The Marion School Board has officially drawn new district lines for its four elementary schools.
Starting in the fall, 276 students in Marion will move from Allen and Frances Slocum to Kendall and Riverview.  Allen and Frances Slocum have become overcrowded in recent years, while Kendall and Riverview have space available.
Director of Support Services Troy Freeman says he appreciates that the decision was made early, so they have more time to notify affected families...
Freeman says the new boundaries will help balance out the schools. The goal was to even out the number of students per school, but still try to keep the stats of the attending students as even as possible...especially in regard to gender and socio-economic status.
