MCS staff can further their education for free!

Under a special arrangement with Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion Community Schools offers all of our teachers and instructional support staff the opportunity to further their education and obtain advanced degrees at no cost to themselves. Marion Community Schools uses professional development funds to pay for up to 12 credit hours per year for staffers working toward a wide variety of education degrees and certifications. In addition, Marion Community Schools offers a similar option through Oakland City University for those wishing to pursue a doctorate and/or superintendent’s licensure. 

>> Marion Community Schools employees interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should contact Brenda McVicker in the curriculum and instruction department. Email her at, or call 662-2546 x. 132.
