Linn-Mar Community School District
In 1949, 17 rural schools joined to build the Marion Rural Independent School District. At that time, 287 students were enrolled in grades K-8. Tenth Street was lined with farm fields as were most of the other current Linn-Mar school building sites. Despite a district name change in 1959 and three merger votes with Marion Independent — all of which failed — Linn-Mar has had continual growth and retained a sense of community for over six decades.

Today, seven elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school are located throughout the District. More than 1,100 staff serve the educational needs of more than 7,800 students in grades K-12. Whether teaching, busing or cooking, Linn-Mar staff are dedicated to the quality of the educational experience of all students.
