On March 18, the Marcellus Board of Education will hold a work session to assess the district’s progress toward meeting previously established goals.  The goals are reviewed annually and are focused on student achievement, finance, facilities and school culture.  The goals are listed below.

  1. Student Achievement- Demonstrate continuous academic improvement and engage students in real world experiences that develop learners to be successful in a technological and dynamic global society. 
  2. Finance -Ensure financial stability while maintaining quality educational and extracurricular programs and adopt a structurally balanced budget, ensuring revenue meets or exceeds expenses while maintaining or elevating the fund balance at 15% of the annual operating budget.
  3. Facilities - Provide a safe, clean and healthy environment that is aesthetically pleasing and conducive to exemplary learning.
  4. School Culture- Cultivate and maintain a positive and respectful school culture that includes engaging enrichment, co-curricular and extracurricular activities.
