PREPARED FOR COLLEGE & WORKFORCE

The Stakes are High

Madison County Schools embark on a series of community conversations across Madison County. These conversations will be a unique way to collect data about the needs and potential solutions for the communities this research is intended to affect. The conversations will focus on how community members define the future workforce; how they learn about new industries and occupations; how well their schools help students prepare for this future; and how their schools should be held accountable for preparing all students. Madison County Schools' eventual policy recommendations will be informed by students, parents, educators, business leaders, board members, and employers.

 

  • Early exposure to career options, particularly in grades K-8

  • Holistic preparation for college and careers in the future workforce and civic life across academic and socioemotional factors

  • Orientation of school accountability systems around the outcomes of college and career readiness as well as the attainment of good jobs

 

This is the opportunity to guarantee we will have college or employment solutions for students once they graduate from Madison County School System.

It involves stepping back from your day-to-day operations and asking where we are headed and what our priorities should be. We will collaborate with the business sector to ensure our strategic plan involves accountability actions that enable our communities to grow and meet the economic goals of the 21st Century.
