Marion County R-II School will qualify for Public Placement funding, which will mean a financial boost of a little over $9,000 to the district.

The funding was discussed during the MCR-II Board of Education meeting last week, at which they also heard an update on APR and the PSRS/PEERS audit and approved a contract for school pictures.

According to Superintendent Deacon Windsor, Brenda Graves, with some help from Teresa Hettinger, worked to get the Public Placement funding.

Public placement is when students attending the school district have parents in a different district. That district then is charged for the days the students are in attendance.
