Madison County has great schools according to those who work with them, and a state report appears to back that claim. For the third year in a row, every Madison County school has been awarded full recognition status from the State of Illinois' Superintendent of Schools. It is recognition that the Madison County Regional Superintendent of Schools says is indicative of the region's commitment to education.
Dr. Robert A. Daiber says such recognition is not only good news for families, but a potential boost to the local economy as well.
In Illinois, recognition status indicates that the school meets all requirements and criteria established in the Illinois School Code for grades kindergarten through 12th grade.
