eMeeting Services for Agendas/Minutes

Beginning January 8, 2015, the Marion County Board of Education began using KSBA’s eMeeting Services to record board meeting agendas and minutes.  Following are the instructions to help navigate:

PLEASE NOTE: The board minutes will only be available to view  after, the next board meeting is held which allows for approval by the board members.

First, under QUICK LINKS, click on  ‘Board of Education’ next, on the far right bottom of this page under LINKS click ‘eMeeting Agendas/Minutes’.  When the KSBA window opens, click on a specific board meeting date (i.e. 01/15/2015).  Scroll down to the item, ‘Approval of Minutes’ (i.e. Board Minutes 010815) and click on the attachment.

Thanks you for your patience during our transition to eMeeting Services.

New applicant system launching February 1, 2015

Effective February 1, 2015, Marion County Public Schools will no longer accept applications through the TalentEd Recruit and Hire system. Applicants, both certified and classified, will be required to complete an online application through our new applicant tracking system called AppliTrack. If you have submitted an application for a vacant position on the TalentEd system, you DO NOT need to resubmit your application on AppliTrack. We do, however, suggest that you establish a pre-employment file when AppliTrack goes live (the link on our homepage for "Current Job Listings" will be changed to our AppliTrack website). If you have any questions about this new application process, please contact Jennifer Osbourne, Personnel Director, at jennifer.osbourne@marion.kyschools.us or 270-692-3721, ext. 231.

Six Big Dreams: Ready-Set-Grow

Marion County Public Schools is pleased to announce the launch of another page that contains information regarding the Ready-Set-Grow dream. This is just one of the six big dreams Marion County Public Schools is investing in to make a positive difference in the lives of children, their families, and our community. This page will continue to grow with additional resources, so continue to check back for new content!

Preparing for Upcoming Weather Conditions

Marion County Public Schools would like to offer this friendly reminder that forecasted temperatures this week will be dipping into the negative degrees. While our buses and schools will be warm, students waiting for buses should remember to dress for the cold. The best approach is layering clothing (coat or jacket, sweatshirt or sweater, etc.), plus head and hand coverings. Please do not allow children to leave the house with exposed skin (ears, hands, legs, etc.), as this increases the chance of frostbite in cold weather. Working together we can beat the cold this winter season!
