MADISON, NJ - The Madison Board of Education approved September 8 as the new start date for schools. The decision
was made at Madison’s Board of Ed meeting on Tuesday, July 28 .

As stated by Board President Heather Reddy, the administration proposed that the start date be pushed back from August 31 to provide additional time to prepare the schools, train the teachers, and provide relief from the summer heat.

The new date only applies to students with teachers starting sooner. Given the unprecedented nature of the upcoming school year, all teachers will be doing professional development in preparation for it.
