Career pathways in agriculture, entrepreneurship and marketing, health science, manufacturing and engineering, media and performing arts, and public safety were areas of interest and questions were answered by Principal Alyson Rocco and Dean of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Laura Quiroz.


The association’s objective is to preserve, advance, and improve public schools while promoting educational opportunities for the betterment of the people of Madera County. MCSBA members raised over $500 in scholarship funds during their meeting. Donations will be combined with funds already raised and be distributed to scholarship winners this spring.
