The mission of the District School Board of Madison County is to prepare students for college, career, and community (civic) life in the 21st century. Everything we do is aimed at ensuring that students graduate, and upon graduation are ready to thrive in the next steps of their lives. Students completing a Career and technical Education program of study may be eligible for articulated credit at a post-secondary institution of their choice. Simply put, articulated credit is credit that is being awarded by a college or technical center for coursework a student completes while attending high school. The State Board of Education approved the listed Statewide Career and Technical Education Articulation Agreements. This supports the Department’s Next Generation Areas of Focus effort Number 3 —“to expand opportunities for post-secondary degrees and certificates.” These agreements are intended to be a minimum guarantee of articulated credit and do not preclude institutions from granting additional credit based on local agreements. Such agreements are binding and guarantee the prospective student with post-secondary credits course completion while in high school. State-wide articulations can be found at: http://fldoe.org/academics/career-adult-edu/career-technical-edu-agreements.
District School Board of Madison County goes further to insure students receive appropriate articulated credit for students desiring to continue their education upon graduating from high school. Each year our district creates and/or updates "local" articulation agreements with three community colleges: North Florida Community College, Florida Gateway College, and Santa Fe College; and, two technical centers: Taylor Technical Institute and Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center. High school counselors are charged with insuring graduating seniors fully understand the benefits of the possibilities of articulated credit.
