Madison County Schools superintendent retiring
Madison County Schools Superintendent Charlotte Seals announced today that she is retiring at the end of the year after 35 years of working in the school district.
Below is the letter she released:
Serving the children of Madison County has been my life’s work, and my greatest professional honor is serving as your superintendent. Our students, faculty and staff, administrators, parents, and community are second to none. Our district and our people truly are the Mark of Excellence.
After much reflection and prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire at the end of this school year. I shared my intentions earlier with members of the Madison County Board of Education who have already started the process to select our next superintendent. Once a new superintendent is named, I look forward to working together to ensure a smooth transition.
As I reflect on my 36 years in education, 35 of them right here in Madison County Schools, I am reminded of how MCS has grown from a small suburban district to a powerhouse in every arena from academics to athletics and the arts. In my more than five years as superintendent, I have been proud to support our district in expanding access to technology devices, growing our school buildings and facilities, increasing access to mental health resources, and adding art teachers in all elementary schools. This year the icing on the cake is watching every school in our district achieve A or B status on the state accountability model. Together we have truly moved the Mark of Excellence forward in so many ways, redefining what it means to be the very best. I am so proud of all that we have achieved together.
I will always be proud to be a Falcon, Jaguar, Maverick, and Titan. You— the Madison County Schools family— will always be my family. I love Madison County Schools, and I love each of you.
