The Superintendent of Schools is the chief executive officer of, and is appointed by, the Madison Local Board of Education.
The Superintendent is responsible for administering all aspects of school district affairs in accordance with federal and state laws, the standards and regulations of the Ohio Department of Education, and the adopted policies and rules and regulations of the Madison Local Board of Education.
Responsible for the administration and supervision of the school district, the Superintendent is the professional advisor of the Board and leader of both the teaching staff and support staff. Since division of labor is essential for managing a large organization, it is expected that the Superintendent will delegate portions of the administrative tasks to building principals and appropriate staff. The responsibility for all activities within any building during school hours belongs to the person deemed accountable to the Superintendent.
The Superintendent exercises leadership and contributes to worthwhile civic activities and enterprises for the benefit of the entire Madison community.
