Senior Experience

The Senior Experience is recognized as one of three "Outstanding Programs" in Ohio's Southwest region by the Ohio School Boards Association and is also a recipient of the "2014 Best Use of Social Media in the Classroom" presented by the Ohio Educational Technology Conference and the "2012 Mark of Distinction Video Media Award" presented by the Ohio School Public Relations Association!
 
The Madison Local School District Communication Intern Project is a curricular program providing 21st century teaching and learning in a real-world setting. In the fall of their senior year, eight diverse students introduce themselves to the world on the district website as student bloggers, committed to sharing “The Senior Experience” with their peers, students, staff and community. Simultaneously, the seniors serve as unpaid interns in the district communications department earning Language Arts credit as they collaborate with the Coordinator of School-Community Relations to develop and implement innovative ways to enhance district-wide communications and promote student achievement.
