"Start Talking!" is the name of a new statewide youth substance abuse prevention initiative, introduced Monday at Madison Middle School.

Several members of the Governor's cabinet, including the Ohio public schools superintendent Dr. Richard Ross, were there to encourage teachers and parents to communicate with kids about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

Madison  is among the first dozen school districts in Ohio to have the "Start Talking!" program introduced to it. Madison Middle School was also awarded for being designated as a High Progress School of Honor.

This is an award given to only a few dozen Ohio schools, for achieving high academic performance while serving a large number of economically disadvantaged students.
