Philosophy Statement

The belief of the Morrow Education Center (MEC) is that ALL students can learn.  MEC works hard to provide an educational experience that addresses each students specific needs and interests - whether it be within MEC itself using our online Acellus credit recovery program, school at home, or our General Education Development (GED) program.  Every student is unique and comes to us for a multitude of reasons  The ultimate goal of MEC is to work in partnership with families to determine the best educational plan for their student culminating in a high school diploma or GED.  

District Prepares for Inclement Weather this Winter

With winter quickly approaching, the Morrow County School District would like to share our inclement weather plan with you. Our goal is to provide the safest possible learning opportunities for our students and staff. Throughout the winter, district administration closely monitors weather and road conditions in our district and strives to inform families of changes in a timely manner. Typically, we try to notify family’s the night before of a late start or closure, but there are times when the weather changes overnight and requires an early morning change in school plans. 

This year, Morrow County School District will continue a 3-HOUR DELAY for bad weather. This later start on inclement weather days allows us more time to evaluate the weather and road conditions before students and staff are traveling for school. On a 3-HOUR DELAY day, buses will run their normal routes, only 3 hours later. On late start days, schools will still have breakfast and lunch available to students.

You can keep informed of school closures in a variety of ways:

  • School Messenger
  • District and School websites
  • District and School Facebook pages
  • Local news and radio station

Thank you for your cooperation.
