Madison County Schools Achieves “A” Rating for Fifth Straight Year
Superintendent Dr. Ronnie McGehee announced today that for the fifth year in a row, Madison County Schools has achieved an “A” rating in statewide accountability scores. For the 2016-2017 school year, Madison County Schools scored highest of all school districts of similar size, and scored tenth overall in the state. Notably, MCS is number one in English Language Arts proficiency of all school districts in the state.
“We know that our parents have a choice about educating their children in Madison County,” said McGehee, “and we are grateful that they continue to choose and support Madison County Schools.”
Consistently strong academic performance is a hallmark of Madison County Schools. The students, teachers and principals of Madison County Schools strive each day to fulfill their potential, and MCS takes great pride in their substantial academic achievements. Another example of this outstanding performance can be seen in MCS’ number of National Merit Semifinalists, which through the years totals more than any other public, private, or parochial school in the state.
With more than 13,000 students, Madison County Schools is the fifth largest school district in the state of Mississippi, serving the communities of Camden, Farmhaven, Flora, Gluckstadt, Madison and Ridgeland. Over the last 20 years, the District has grown from nine schools to 23 campuses currently in operation. Individually, we are Falcons, Jaguars, Mavericks and Titans, but collectively we are Madison County Schools.
The District’s motto is “Madison County Schools: Mark of Excellence!” MCS is strongly committed to offering a challenging education, and that commitment is evident in the programs and opportunities available to students. The goal of Madison County Schools is to help each child reach his or her fullest potential and for each child to excel. Put simply, MCS strives to motivate, educate, and graduate.
Madison County Schools educates students to prepare them for college and beyond, graduating the next generation of leaders not only for Madison County but also for the nation and world.
### MOTIVATE, EDUCATE, GRADUATE!
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. This system is an effort to create a positive school community with consistent expectations in all areas of the school. From the hallways to the playground, from the cafeteria to the restrooms, PBIS helps MAE students understand what is expected of them and provides motivation to comply with those expectations. We use PAWS to help us remember what to do in every area of the school!
~Students can earn Jag Paws by displaying behavior on the PBIS matrix. These Jag Paws will be given by any staff member (administrators, teachers, assistants, front office staff, cafeteria employees, bus drivers, and custodians) so there will be opportunities to earn them throughout the day and throughout the school. Displaying proper behavior and Life Skills will earn plenty of Jag Paws. Students will be given the opportunity throughout the year to "spend" the Jag Paws they have collected. This can be done at a PBIS store (monthly or quarterly), on extra recess, lunch with the principal, homework passes…etc. This is up to the administrator’s discretion.
