The Madison School Board will consider appointing a committee to explore the establishment of a new junior kindergarten program at Madison Elementary School when it meets at 6:30 p.m. in Room 400 located near the front entrance of Madison High School.
A proposal to create a junior kindergarten program was presented to the school board members before the start of the fall semester after school officials learned they would have enough kindergarten students to fill a fifth classroom. The board members decided against starting a junior kindergarten program, partly because the timing was so close to the beginning of the school year.
The board members will consider approving a date -- possibly Nov. 17 or 24 or Dec. 1 -- for holding a high school dedication. They will also consider appointing a committee for the ceremony.
In other business, the board members will consider:
-- Approving an open-enrollment application.
-- Listening to comments from Heidi Comes concerning the first day of school.
-- Rescinding a previous open-enrollment application.
-- Approving the trade of the district's Gehl skid-steer loader for a new model.
