Madison-Grant Speaks up for Small Schools at Rural Caucus

Dr. Scott Deetz and State Rep. Tony Cook pose togetherIndianapolis, IN - (August 14, 2019) - The Rural Caucus met today at the Indiana State Fair in the Normandy Barn, where legislators gathered to learn about the issues facing rural communities in the heartland. Small and rural schools were first up on the agenda. Dr. Scott Deetz of Madison-Grant United School Corporation and Dr. Travis Madison of Barr Reeve Community Schools both spoke on their recent success by doing what rural communities do best: build community partnerships. The superintendents are stand out small and rural school corporations able to increase offerings at every level through their ability to tap into other resources.

State Representative Tony Cook was also in attendance and credits the success of Madison-Grant “to the grassroots efforts of the Madison-Grant team to cultivate relationships with community resources that benefit the students and staff.” Dr. Scott Deetz agrees, and said of their ability to thrive in a small and rural school community, “We teach our students how important it is to be connected as part of our community. This also holds true for our school system; we really focus on partnerships.”

Every year Madison-Grant students go out into the community to learn about service, volunteerism, and being a great citizen in their area. The school corporation is setting the example for students by working together with other systems as part of a co-op to reduce costs. “We partner with other school systems to share the cost of food services and are also a part of a consortium for insurance. Our costs are 25 to 30% less than those not a part of the group. We can funnel those dollars back in house to offer more to our students.” Special education is also another area where Madison-Grant maximizes funds by subscribing to a co-op and developing the services to best meet the needs of their students. Small schools are given the opportunity to thrive when control is local, and the community is invested in their success. Deetz credits community partners for amping up an initial offering of three dual credits just two years ago to currently 50 dual credits and the opportunity for students to graduate with 18 job ready certifications. Madison-Grant’s mission is to inspire, challenge, and cultivate excellence in every Argyll.
