Madison Local Schools has been named a Breakfast & Beyond school district by the Ohio School Breakfast Challenge (OSBC). This challenge encourages schools to start the day with school breakfast so all students are ready to learn. Madison has received “Super Star” distinction and a medallion from the OSBC for their excellence, innovative, and collaborative work to increase access to school meals during the pandemic.
