District Wide Announcements
Welcome to Madison School District












Welcome to the Madison School District where great things are happening every day!
 
In 2013 Madison earned the prestigious AdvancEd district wide accreditation recognizing our student achievement and rigorous academic standards, as well as our educational programming and processes.

The combined efforts of our highly qualified and dedicated staff and our supportive community are producing results and fulfilling our mission to enable each of our students to be successful in an ever changing world.  
 
Significant recent achievements include Madison Middle School’s recognition as a National Title I Distinguished School (one of only two such schools in Michigan), Madison Elementary and Madison Middle schools being designated as Reward Schools by the Michigan Department of Education, Madison High School earning the U.S. News & World Report Bronze Award, and Bridge Magazine recognizing Madison as one of the top ten rural and small schools in Michigan, and 18th overall when compared to all Michigan schools.  
  
Our website is designed to provide an overview/introduction to our school district, as well as school calendar information. You are welcome to contact any of our building administrators for additional information.

Sincerely,
Ryan Rowe, Superintendent

MADISON TEACHER VISITS ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG

Mr. Bill Wilharms recently participated in a National Endowment for the Humanities Workshop at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez, Colorado.  He was a part of a team of educators, doctors, and members of the Pueblo and Ute Tribes who spent a week researching the history of the Ancestral Pueblo Peoples and visiting the Cliff Dwellings in southwest Colorado.

The group participated in lectures and discussions about teaching anthropology and archeology, visited excavation sites, and learned how researchers answer questions about our unwritten past. During their research, the team found artifacts that date back to the 700-1100 C.E. time period.

Mr. Wilharms teaches AP World History, AP American History, US History, World History and Military History and looks forward to sharing his experience with his students.


SUPERINTENDENT HARTLEY ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT
After nearly four decades of leadership of the Madison School District, Superintendent Hartley announced that he intends to retire effective June 30.  Hartley has been working with the District on an annual contract for the past four years and notified the Madison School Board at its June 16 meeting that he will not seek renewal.

Deeply committed to the District, Hartley missed only one Board meeting in his role as Superintendent and could regularly be found at sporting events, musical performances, and fundraisers.  Over the past 38 years, he has signed nearly 2,000 diplomas, worked with 33 Board members, and has recommended numerous teachers and staff members for employment with Madison. 

My deepest thanks for some great memories, wonderful friendships, and the tremendous opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many children.  We have accomplished a great deal together and have much to be proud of.”  - James Hartley, Madison Superintendent

Madison Associate Superintendent, Ryan Rowe, was hired to replace Hartley by the Board of Education at its regular meeting on Monday, June 16.  Rowe has served the District as Associate Superintendent for two years.  He will assume the role of Superintendent beginning July 1, 2014.
