With over a 15.6% enrollment increase since 2010, Marshall continued to experience stable enrollment growth. Overcrowding at both elementary schools, critical infrastructure needs, and educational programming needs drove the need for Marshall Public Schools’ long-range planning process. The theme “Investing in a Strong Future” then paved the way for a successful $29.8 million bond referendum passed in May 2019. Designed to support grades 2-4, the new 81,500-square-foot facility includes a community gymnasium and the flexibility to adapt to changing education delivery methods. Other improvements included a three-classroom Early Childhood addition at Park Side Elementary, improvements to serve PK – 1st-grade students, centralized Early Childhood programming at Park Side Elementary, safety and security improvements at Park Side Elementary, the new Elementary School, MATEC, and Marshall High School and the decommissioning of West Side Elementary.
