We Are Ready For An Exciting School Year

Madison City Schools leaders met this week to discuss logistics and procedures for the upcoming school year and brainstorm ways to better serve ALL students.
The conference, held at Burritt on the Mountain, was for district level and school level administrators.

After a group photo from the picturesque Burritt patio overlooking the valley, school teams assembled for a photo op and planning meetings for their school. A great two-days of collaborating on issues affecting all levels: safety, special education, transportation, instruction, and more.
