MARION, OH - During Monday's regularly-scheduled meeting of the Marion City School District Board of Education, district administrators learned that the school district would be awarded grants which total more than $10 million.

The grants are divided into competitive grants and entitlement grants, which allow the schools to provide the funds for programs that support raising literacy, after-school programs, and the ability to offer programs for students that exceed and learn from advanced coursework.

The total for competitive grants totals $6,055,800, while the total for entitlement grants totals $3,957,298.

“I’m excited about the work that we’ve done to refresh our strategic plan,” said Dr. Ronald Iarussi, Superintendent of Marion City School District. “I appreciate the insights and feedback provided by our staff, families and the Marion community to refocus our strategic plan.”
