Welcome to the Facilities Planning Webpage
The Marshall Public School’s Board of Education has responsibility to plan for school facilities that address changing enrollment patterns and support high quality education programs. An effective school system provides safe, healthy and effective educational environments and facilities in support of teaching and learning. Changes in student enrollment and demographics necessitate the need to update district facilities to ensure the most efficient and effective use of district educational facilities and resources. On December 19, 2016, the Board of Education unanimously supported asking voters to consider two facility questions in an April 18, 2017 Special Election.Current Building Structure
