Boonesborough Elementary and more for Madison County Schools Madison County Schools is excited to announce the opening of Boonesborough Elementary School on Boonesborough Road! Th e school will open in August 2018 and the district is anticipating serving about 400 students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade. Th e excitement and anticipation grows each day as the building is taking shape and plans are moving forward. Th e school’s principal will be Dr. Shelly Boulden and her duties will begin on Feb. 1, 2018. Dr. Boulden will be busy working to hire staff and get the building ready to welcome students on that fi rst day of school. Th e district is also working toward building a new bus garage in the southern end of the county. Th e current southern bus garage is a rented and limited space. Th e new building will be on the campus of Farristown Middle School and will be capable of refueling as well as much of the same maintenance and repair work that is currently only done at the northern bus garage. Th e district is anticipating some cost savings and more effi ciency when the new garage is open. Madison County Schools has grown to a student population of more than 11,100 students and 1,800 full-time staff members. But growth has not slowed down any progress in the classroom. Our district maintains its status as one of the state’s top performers on the state assessments. Th e district has set goals and we have continued to reach them. Our success as a district is contingent on the success of each of our students. Achieving at high levels really means that our students are succeeding. Our job now is to make sure that continues. Th e future of the district is bright and we are excited for all the opportunities our students have for learning and achieving. Madison County Schools is On Fire for Th eir Future! 1000 Ival James Blvd. • Suite 2 Richmond BLUEGRASS R EACHING E VERY S TUDENT , E VERY D AY M ADISON C OUNTY S CHOOLS 30 Richmond Chamber of Commerce (859) 625-0500 Michelle P.
