Spring keeps springing!
In just a few weeks our doors will close for the summer and all will be quiet on the Madison-Plains front.
There is a lot in store for us before the 2012-2013 school year comes to an end, however.
The district is on the ballot this spring, with an important measure that would allow us to make some much needed improvements in our buildings, at our bus garage and across our grounds.
I often talk about "ABCs and 123s" and the building blocks to a strong foundation. The replacement levy you'll see at the polls would raise the dollars for items our community group has identified as essential: air conditioning (A), buses (B), and making upgrades to our common spaces (C) to alleviate the overcrowding in our lunch rooms and gyms.
The Madison-Plains Advisory Committee has been meeting for more than a year to help the district share information about these needs and help develop the district's 10-year financial plan.
Speaking of planning and preparing for the future, the administration has been working diligently along with the Board and some community members to write a comprehensive strategic plan to identify strategies to push the district forward academically. The resulting Madison-Plains Improvement Plan (MPIP) will outline goals, idenfiy strategies and define expectations to help our staff increase student achievement.
we earned a lower rating on the state's Local Report Card for 2011-12 because we did not meet the Value-Added indicator which measures whether a student's knowledge grows by a year over the course of a year.
We will be implement the MPIP when school resumes this fall. I'm truly confident our students will respond positively to increased rigor and am eager to see them all rise to the challenge.
Madison-Plains is a great place to be and I look forward to the continued momentum. Thank you for your on-going support and commitment to our district!
