Marysville Schools Receives $1 Million Literacy Grant

Marysville Schools is pleased to announce that the district has been awarded a $1,050,000 four-year literacy grant from the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).

“We are thrilled to be chosen among our peers to receive this competitive grant,” stated Superintendent Diane Allen. “By receiving these funds, it’s an acknowledgement that our current work on reading instruction and literacy instruction is among the best. According to ODE, we are a model district.”

Marysville Schools has a comprehensive plan in place to use these additional resources to enhance the literacy programming and instruction at the middle and high school levels. 

“The four-year subgrant will focus on developing model literacy sites in our intermediate, middle school and high schools,” added Marysville K-6 Literacy Director Steven Griffin. “The proposed model sites will concentrate on implementing best practices proven to improve literacy outcomes.”

In addition, by accessing these grant funds from the state, the district can reinvest current resources to continue building upon current literacy and reading programming at the elementary level.  

"Marysville School has been recognized as a national leader in providing a high quality and effective literacy curriculum,” added Allen. “These additional funds will help us build upon the great work by our staff and really enhance our core literacy instruction at all grade levels.”
