At the March 31 Marengo County BOE meeting, K-12 Instructor Cathy Seale provided the board with her monthly update of activity in the three county schools.

Her first topic of discussion was the FAFSA completion report. As of March 23, Marengo County Schools are ranked top in the state for FAFSA completion at 95 percent. At the time of the meeting, Seale said the school system is 3 students short of 100 percent, but that they were working to get those last students to completion.

The Betabox Skills on Wheels Learning Lab has completed visits to Sweet Water, Marengo, and A.L. Johnson, and all visits were deemed successful. Seale said they are already planning return visits for fall 2022.
