If Marion County voters approve the one-cent sales tax to support schools that’s on the March 17th ballot, the Centralia City Grade School District has a plan for the money.
Superintendent Craig Clark says they would like to add a social worker at each building to assist students with a variety of issues. Right now, the only counselors available are on an individual case basis through a partnership with the Community Resource Center.
Clark says the sales tax would also make money available for the district to have a school resource officer that would be shared among the Centralia City Schools. He notes right now the Centralia Police Department has an officer who provides services to all Centralia schools as time is available.
