Recognition was given to the Marengo School Districts for exemplary intergovernmental cooperation in the state of Illinois for their successful shared service achievements. The core of this effort is the firm belief to help provide more effective and efficient services while saving taxpayer dollars. The area school districts share personnel in areas of high demand, including professionals such as speech pathologists, school psychologists, IT coordinators, bus drivers and custodial personnel. Because of the location of the three districts, they share facilities, including the gym, auditorium, buses and personnel as needed, to ensure cost effectiveness for all three districts. Despite the small sizes of these districts and their other partners, they offer a full range of services to students.
