Albion-Marshall merger

"If Marshall Public Schools were to merge with Albion Public Schools, Marshall board President Richard Lindsey said it's likely his district would keep an elementary school in Albion. 'If Marshall were to annex or consolidate with Albion, we do not have the space in our elementaries. They are full,' Lindsey said, speaking on behalf of himself at Tuesday's Albion Public Schools board of education meeting." (Battle Creek Enquirer)

"The Marshall Public Schools Board of Education voted Monday to empower Superintendent Randy Davis to enter discussions with Albion Public Schools on the possible consolidation or annexation of Albion's district into Marshall." (Battle Creek Enquirer)

"Albion Public Schools is at a tipping point. The K-8 district has lost about 100 students this academic year, Superintendent Jerri-Lynn Williams-Harper said, leaving the district with only 454 students at this point." (Battle Creek Enquirer)

Marshall Superintendent says it will take two to three years to know full impact of merger with Albion High School


Vic Potter has been on the Marshall School Board 12 years, and has been president of the board for the last eight years.
