Madison Local School District offers every student a comprehensive education. Without leaving the school district, every student may choose from many career paths - from skilled employment immediately out of high school to the highest college degree.
In 1975 the Madison community decided that they did not want to bus their children to a career center out of the community. They built an addition to the high school and provided what is now called Career Technical education to any student interested in obtaining a skill before graduation.
Ohio law states that every student must have access to Career Technical education. It may be provided by busing students to a joint vocational school (JVS) or by providing programs in a comprehensive setting as Madison does.
Over sixty percent of Madison juniors and seniors are taking advantage of comprehensive offerings. They may plan to enter the work force through internships or they may gain college credit while attending Tech Prep and Career Technical classes at Madison.
Besides offering an excellent education for all students, how do Madison taxpayers and students benefit by being a comprehensive school system?
Career Technical Educational is a good investment for the Madison Local School District, area employers and students of any age as evidenced by the success of former students in higher education and the economic community.
