Madison’s “School Renewal Plan” public forum scheduled for Tuesday
MADISON, CT – With the original date scuttled due to bad weather, the public forum for the Madison Public School Renewal Plan is set for Tuesday.
The forum will be held at 7:00 p.m. at Walter C. Polson Middle School and via Zoom.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Craig Cooke, Facilities Manager Bill McMinn, Financial Director Stacy Nobitz and representatives from Colliers International will review the overall scope of the project, discuss educational specifications for any new construction and present the project budget and the expected tax impact.
There will be a question-and-answer session after the presentation and a discussion for the audience to provide comments and ask questions.
Visit the district website at www.madison.k12.ct.us/renewal to learn more about the Madison School renewal plan and to access the Zoom link in the public forum.
The plan includes:
The plan will result in the closure of two of the oldest school buildings – Jeffrey and Ryerson Elementary Schools – as well as the Town Campus Learning Center Preschool, reducing the district to four buildings. Construction would begin shortly after a referendum, if successful, and all new and renovated buildings would open in 2025.
The comprehensive plan selected and put in place for a public referendum in February 2022 will allow our buildings to offer better indoor air quality, comply with current building codes, include enhanced school safety and, ultimately, to provide learning environments that meet the needs of education now and in the future.
