Achieving Excellence One Student at a Time


Back-to-School Spotlight Message from Mr. Philpot, MLSD Superintendent
We welcome back our students and staff with new and renewed educational goals as well as enhanced safety and supports. Although last year proved to be challenging in many ways, our staff, students and community have continued to work together to reflect, learn and grow.  I would again like to thank everyone for their assistance and support in the wake of a difficult year.   

As we move forward, our staff continues to set high academic expectations.  Last spring, students in grades 3-8 and high school took Ohio’s State Tests in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.  These tests measure student progress toward Ohio’s Learning Standards, showing that our students have the knowledge and skills needed to move successfully to their next steps in education or a career.  Our staff uses these test results to better plan and implement lessons for academic progress year after year.

Over the summer, we made several safety enhancements on campus while working diligently to maintain a welcoming and supportive environment for students and staff.  This year the MLSD will have two full-time school resource officers on campus.  Other physical enhancements include classroom number signs on the exterior and interior of the building, improved public address system and additional secured keyfob entry points to the building.  The district also invested in handheld metal detectors, additional emergency radios and the installation of shatterproof safety film on the windows of all classroom doors.  

The MLSD administration took additional training this summer to enhance our safety protocols in the event of a crisis situation.  Our staff and students will learn and practice these protocols through drills scheduled throughout the school year.  

Additionally, in a partnership with Monroe, Middletown, Edgewood and Fairfield schools, Madison will share the benefits of a Director of Public Safety who will serve as the liaison with EMA, first responders, Ohio Homeland Security, Ohio Department of Education and many others.  This person will coordinate safety plans, trainings, and manage all compliance mandates for all five districts. 

Finally, through funds from a grant from the United States Department of Education, Madison Local School District will continue to have additional supports available for stress management and crisis intervention as needed.
Our hope is that all of these efforts, combined with the positive and supportive culture in our schools, will set the tone for a fantastic 2016-2017 school year.
