Board Policies

Adoption Date: Mar 12, 2008
Revision Date: Jun 27, 2012

Per Indiana Code 20-42.5-3-6 which states: “Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, each governing body shall establish goals for each category of expenditures set forth in section 4 of this chapter that will increase the school corporation’s allocation of taxpayer resources directly to student instruction and learning, in light of the unique circumstances present in the school corporation


Circumstances that are unique to the various school corporations will affect their abilities to satisfy the legislature’s desire to increase the percentage of expenditures classified as “Student Instructional Expenditures”.  Those conditions are recognized in the statutory requirement for establishing goals.


Our annual expenditure goal is as follows:


The Marion Community Schools exists for the purpose of providing a quality education for every student served.  All functions of the organization, instructional and non-instructional, are integral to the realization of that objective.  We will strive to expend our resources in an effective and efficient manner, regardless of expenditure category, to accomplish our mission.
