Our Goals


  • Marion County School District participates in an ongoing effort to identify, locate, and evaluate children between the ages of three through twenty-one who may be suspectedor diagnosed with a disability who resides within the district.


  • Provide specially designed educational services/opportunities to all students with a disability to meet their unique needs.
