Madison County High School: Moving Forward
Teachers such as Andrea Krell, Monica Dyke, Robin Smith, Mike Radel and Ed Sapp stress math, reading, and technical skills in order to prepare their students for their respective certification exams. Certifications vary from Agricultural Technician, ADOBE Flash, ADOBE Dreamweaver, Microsoft Office Bundle, Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Food Protection Manager, Biotechnician Assistant, and the Early Childhood Professional Certificate certifications.
In the 2013-2014 school year, 119 certifications were earned. Students earned 165 certifications alone for the 2014-2015 school year. Teachers efforts during the 2013-14 school year has allowed Madison County High School to earn a $76,916 in return on investment. Eighty percent of the return is to help these growing programs at Madison County High. Coordinator of Career, Technical, and Alternative Education, Sam Stalnaker said the following, “The students win, the teachers win, and the District wins.”
Soon, MCHS and the Madison County Central School hope to offer an engineering program and also have programs where students can receive credit hours from colleges after students complete the programs.
