While the Marion County Board of Education spent most of the public portion of its June 19 meeting addressing the superintendent’s residency, that wasn’t the only issue affecting local schools last week.
Marion County Public Schools recently learned that they have the potential for a bonding capacity of up to $5.89 million. 
The report was provided to the district by Mark Rawlings, the vice president of Hilliard and Lyons in Paducah.
In another matter, Marion County Superintendent Taylora Schlosser announced via email on June 21 that Lisa Caldwell will remain as the district’s finance officer.
Previously, multiple sources told the Enterprise that Caldwell would not be in that position after June 30.
“It is my pleasure to announce that Lisa Caldwell will be continuing to serve as the Marion County Public Schools’ Central Finance Officer,” Schlosser wrote. “I want to clarify that I support Mrs. Caldwell’s performance and I believe she has done a great job in managing the district’s finances, and will continue to do so. I look forward to working with Mrs. Caldwell and moving Marion County Public Schools towards our dreams and ultimate goals.”
