    Madison County Schools Adds Math Coordinator

    (For immediate release: Madison County Schools, July 16, 2014)

    “When our needs change, we change” reports Madison County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Ronnie McGehee in response to the addition of a Mathematics Curriculum Coordinator in the Curriculum Department. “As we expect our teachers and students to dig deeper into mathematical concepts, it is important that our department provide the resources necessary for the transition,” Associate Superintendent of Academic Education Charlotte Seals commented.

    By casting the net wide, district leaders found a perfect fit for the newly created position in Dr. Jennifer Fillingim, a Jackson native who was teaching at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN.  Dr. Fillingim holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mathematics and a PhD in Mathematics Education. As an Assistant Professor at APSU, she was nominated twice for the campus-wide Socrates Award for Excellence in Teaching and served as the faculty sponsor for the Galois Mathematics Club, as well as a board member for the Middle Tennessee Mathematics Teachers organization.  Read more

Welcome to Our District 

Welcome to the website for Madison County Schools. With nearly 13,000 students, we are the fifth largest school district in the state of Mississippi. Madison County Schools is the highest scoring county school district in Mississippi to achieve an "A" rating based on the statewide accountability model.  

Our motto is “Madison County Schools: Mark of Excellence!” We are strongly committed to offering a challenging education, and that commitment is very evident in the programs and opportunities available to our children. Our goal is not only to help each child reach his or her fullest potential; but also for each child to excel. 

Our district has initiated a student BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program for middle school and high school students, block scheduling in the middle schools, ICT/STEM course offerings beginning in 6th grade, and instituted the first administration of the ACT test to all 11th graders, onsite at the District’s high schools, at no charge to students. Our focus on “Motivate, Educate and Graduate” resulted in over 90% of the 2013 senior class graduating on time.

As you peruse our website, we hope you will find a great deal of helpful information about Madison County Schools’ programs, activities, and upcoming events.

Yours in Education,

Ronnie L. McGehee, Ph. D.
