In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency. In 2010, the high school, middle school, and learning center were all rated academically acceptable as well.
In 2015 the district had about 900 students.

Michael Seabolt became the superintendent in 2015.
Marlin ISD received an "academically unacceptable" rating from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) in 2011. In 2013 and 2014 the TEA gave it "improvement required". In September 2015 the TEA sent a letter stating that it planned to revoke the accreditation as of July 1, 2016, which would lead to the closure of the district. Stephanie Butts of the Waco Tribune-Herald wrote that the announcement caught Marlin ISD officials "off guard".
In response, Marlin ISD filed a request for an informal review of the closure. The announcement resulted in a meeting being held by the Saved Our Schools volunteer organization. In November 2015 the TEA gave a temporary reprieve requiring academic improvement.

The elementary and middle school campuses were previously Marlin Elementary School and Marlin Middle School, but in 2015 the names were changed due to a rule from the TEA.
