    Marion County High School teacher Kurt Mattingly didn't have to do much to persuade his students to try something new in his class.

    "As soon as I mentioned the word iPod, their eyes lit up," he said.

    During the first trimester, students in Mattingly's resource math class used the iPod as a part of their studies. Mattingly created videos that summarized daily lessons, and he loaded those videos onto the iPods.

  • High school looking to add two educators

    Marion County Superintendent Donald Smith said a few weeks ago that the time for talking is over. Instead, the district needs to take action to make improvements.

    Last week, the Marion County Board of Education reached a consensus to support allowing Marion County High School to hire two new educators for the remainder of the 2010-11 academic year. It will be up to the high school's site-based decision making council to decide if it will hire two math teachers or one math teacher and one counselor.
