Act 939 for Military Families
The Marion School District, the home of the Patriots, is committed to providing children of military families who are enrolled in MSD equitable access to academic courses and programs and to extracurricular, academic, athletic, and social programs.
MSD will ensure that children of military families who are subject to frequent moves and deployment of their parents are enrolled in school in a timely manner and that the difficulty in the transfer of education records from a previous public school, including a public school in another state will not be a barrier to enrollment. MSD will make certain that in the student placement process, children of military families are not disadvantaged by variations in attendance requirements, scheduling, lesson sequencing, grading, course content, and assessment.
MSD will facilitate the qualification and eligibility for enrollment in educational programs and participation in extracurricular activities. MSD will strive for the on-time graduation of children of military families and provide for the adoption and enforcement of administrative rules to support this initiative. MSD will promote uniform collection and sharing of information between and among public school districts and flexibility and cooperation between educational systems, parents, legal guardians, and students in order to achieve educational success for the student.
