District News
October Talon Talk is released
The newest version of our eNewsletter is now live and ready for you to dive in. Take a look at this month's important updates: Who voted us the best school district in the county; the bigger and better BYOT program at the high school; changes to eligibility requirements, the importance of parent-teacher conferences and how the state report card looks for the district after a deeper analysis. We've also added items to the calendar. Take a look here.
 
Closer look at Report Card shows even more gains
Students in Madison-Plains are making greater strides than the results of the most recent report card issued by the state show at first glance. Curriculum Director Karen Grigsby shared details about the improvements with the Board of Education and Madison-Plains Advisory Council this month. While M-P jumped to a C on the value-added indicator from an F, a deeper analysis of the data shows even more gains.  
Best of the Best: We're No. 1
Madison-Plains was voted best school district in the county by the Madison-Press. The publication releases it annual Best of the Best issue each fall. Madison-Plains has shown marked improvement on test scores and is in sound fiscal health after two renewals at the polls last year for operating and permanent improvement dollars. Superintendent Tim Dettwiller, who took over the helm in August, said the district's Improvement Plan that was put in place just more than a year ago has set the district in a clear upward motion. 
Report cards available Wednesday
Report cards for the first grading period will be available through ProgressBook on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Contact your child's teacher with questions or concerns. The second grading period begins Tuesday, Oct. 27. For more information about our curriculum or standards our students must meet at each grade level, click here.

The Madison-Plains FFA Chapter's annual fruit sale fundraiser runs from Oct. 16-Nov. 19, 2014. The sale supports the chapter throughout the year by funding Career Development Events, state contest, membership development, community service initiatives, scholarships and awards.  
Get ready for one great celebration
Madison-Plains Elementary students and staff will take part in a Fall Harvest Celebration on Friday, Oct. 31. The day will start with a hayride throughout the campus, sponsored by the school’s PTO, which is also providing two gallons of Madison-Plains High School FFA Apple Cider for each classroom.

Your Schools. Your Choice.
At Madison-Plains, we are serious about parent and community input. Your voices drive what we do for our students. You told us to make our schools stronger, make our courses of study more rigorous and we agreed. Much of your feedback help set the Madison-Plains Improvement Plan into action. And, as a result, we are making strides. 
Extra! Extra! Community fliers now online!
A new section featuring community-wide events and information has been added to the district's website. The M-P Fliers Community Connect page -- available from the Parents and Community tabs -- will serve as a repository for all of the requests the district receives throughout the year to distribute materials to students and their families. Subscribers to the page will receive notifications through an RSS feed. The online clearinghouse creates a streamlined resource for parents and other members of the community.
