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

Yours in Education,
Joe Knoll - Superintendent
