HAMILTON - County education officials and employees have received praise for the consistent success of the Marion County Schools System despite the fact it ranks among the lowest in the state for discretionary funds.
Marion County Superintendent of Education Ann West distributed the statewide analysis reports to members of the board of education at their meeting on Friday, March 22, at the Marion County Schools Central Office in Hamilton.
West told the board that the system moved up one place in FY 2018, placing it at 131st out of 138.
The previous fiscal year, FY 2017, the county school system was ranked 132nd out of 138 school systems for per-pupil discretionary funds available.
