A new licensing agreement approved by the Madison school board has given a boost to the already-vibrant chess program in the city’s schools.The board recently approved a one-year site license agreement that provides students with access to Chesskid.com, the school-based arm of Chess.com. John Peck, public relations manager for the school district, said every elementary student in the system, plus students enrolled in the middle school chess elective or on one of the schools’ chess teams will have access to the site. Training on using the site begins next month.
