    This is a great opportunity for students to be exposed to the amazing programs at Madison College. Breakout sessions include instructor and support services presentations and a campus tour!

    Held yearly 

    Join us for an evening with representatives from organizations offering a variety of post-high school opportunities and support for individuals with disabilities. Even if you are not a senior, this is your opportunity to start planning for your future.

    This event is sponsored by area school districts and Madison College. 

  • Parent Preview

A Note for Parents:

Parents are always important, but even more so for students with disabilities. Your role is critical to their success, and DRS honors and wants to support you. The Handbook for Parents of Students with Disabilities (PDF, 191KB) was written with you in mind. In it we:

  • address concerns and questions.
  • describe the new roles you and your child have in the accommodation process.
  • explain how college disability services differ from high school services.

The handbook also introduces some of the legal and philosophical changes that occur for students with disabilities upon graduation from high school and entrance into Madison College.

We encourage you to read it and contact us with any questions you have.
