Madison Schools Renewal Plan

The Madison Public Schools is committed to consistently maintaining our facilities and planning for the future of our buildings as 21st century learning environments.
In September of 2019, the Madison Public Schools contracted from six schools to five with the closure of Island Avenue Elementary School. Now, the schools are composed of the following grade levels:
  • Jeffrey Elementary School, Kindergarten - Grade 3
  • Ryerson Elementary School, Kindergarten - Grade 3
  • Brown Intermediate School, Grades 4 and 5
  • Polson Middle School, Grades 6 - 8
  • Daniel Hand High School, Grades 9-12

According to Connecticut General Statutes 10-220, each Board of Education in Connecticut is responsible for the day to day maintenance and operation of its buildings, lands, and other property used for school purposes. Additionally, this statute mandates that each Board of Education “shall make a continuing study of the need for school facilities and of a long-term school building program, and from time to time, make recommendations based on such study to the town.” Within this purview, the Board of Education has worked in collaboration with the Town of Madison to study the long-term needs of its facilities, while planning for future enrollment trends.

This web page is dedicated to providing the community with up to date information on the existing facilities of the Madison Public Schools district, while also sharing critical information related to the ongoing maintenance and long-term planning for our facilities.
