North Marion Residents Discuss Future of School Projects

There's tough decisions that will need to be made by the Marion County Board of education. That's according to the executive director of the School Building Authority.
 
Dr. Mark Manchin was invited to attend an open forum at North Marion High School Tuesday evening. He was there to discuss with the public what they want for their schools.
 
The November bond failed to pass, so it's back to the drawing board for officials. The general consensus seemed like a majority of folks want each community to keep their own schools, as opposed to consolidation in one or two brand new schools.
 
"What our charge is tonight, is find out what they will say 'yes' to and that's us. That's me as a public figure with the School Building Authority, that is the five elected members of the board of education and the superintendent. That's where it starts to find where the people will say 'yes.'
 
Dr. Manchin said he'll be sitting down with folks to hear their recommendations.

Manchin and the SBA want to push consolidation, just like they did here in Gilmer County. We wanted to keep our community schools too. When we didn't fall in line, the state took over our schools and after giving some of our students to Lewis County with the new intercounty school, they are going ahead with their plans to make one elementary for the rest of Gilmer. The people don't want that, but they don't care. I hope the people in Marion County can make the SBA listen.
