About our District
The Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools are committed to leading ALL students to college, career, and civic readiness.
Both its High School and Elementary have recently been named to ODE’s Schools of Promise, and its Elementary has earned the most distinguished honor of being named a National Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education.
The Agricultural Education program is continually recognized as one the best in State through individual student honors and well as FFA chapter awards.
Through Project Lead the Way and High Schools That Work initiatives, the district’s pre-engineering programs have realized growth and success among students.
The district serves 71 square miles with residents in both Morrow and Marion Counties and accepts Open Enrollment students from more than 10 neighboring districts.
In November of 2013, district voters approved a five-year 0.75% earned income tax that aims to generate over $800,000 annually. The community’s support will enable the district to have the financial support it needs to continue to offer an excellent program for students.
