School Opening Off To A Good Start

Madison City Schools welcomed 12,000-plus students for the 2022-2023 school year.

School employees - superintendent, admin staff, teachers, transportation workers, CNP, etc. - wore "Glad to Be Here" shirts to affirm their gladness in being here.

We look forward to all the exciting things to come in Madison City Schools. Here are some random pics of the school start.
