MSD Makes Online Learning for Students K-12 Easy

During these days of social distancing, Marion School District worked hard to make distant learning as easy as possible for parents and students. Assistant Superintendent, Hugh Inman and the district school improvement specialist, Sandra Halley worked diligently with administrators and other key people to provide AMI packets and later an online format to continue meeting student learning objectives. Until May 1st, paper packets for AMI days 1-10 will be accepted on Tuesdays at your child's school office from 8am to 3pm and on Fridays at food drop off locations. Going forward all AMI days will be online through Reading Horizons, Edmentum, and Study Island.
