To Our Marlington Families:

Thank you to our elementary parents who attended the parent meeting on Monday, January 14 or took the online survey we provided regarding the consolidation of our three elementary buildings down to two. We appreciate your time, feedback and dedication to the students of Marlington.

Through both the meeting and the survey, we heard numerous concerns about the grade-level concept and how it would negatively affect our families. Based on this feedback, the Board of Education has decided to keep the Lexington and Washington Elementary buildings as K-5 schools.

As you are aware, the original plan was to convert Lexington and Washington Elementary Schools into grade-level specific buildings. With this change, Lexington and Washington will remain K-5 buildings beginning next school year moving forward to best meet the needs of our students.

The district is still finalizing several logistical items, such as which building the Marlboro students will attend, transportation, and open enrollment. The goal is to have this complete by the Thursday, February 21 Board meeting, where it will be shared with parents and community members.

To view the results from the survey and parent meeting, please click on the links located on this page.

If you have any additional questions, please call my office at 330-823-7458 or email at j_knoll@marlingtonlocal.org.

Yours in Education,

Joe Knoll - Superintendent
