The Madison Metropolitan School District is the second-largest school district in Wisconsin and serves over 26,000 students in 52 schools. The district covers approximately 74 square miles including all or part of the cities of Madison and Fitchburg, the villages of Maple Bluff and Shorewood Hills, and the towns of Blooming Grove and Burke. Madison is a growing and diversifying community with a thriving network of nonprofit, civic and community-based organizations, and higher education institutions. The vision of our school district is to ensure that every school will be a thriving school that prepares every student to graduate ready for college, career and community. MMSD is proud of the work done to support and nurture our current success and we recognize that there is much work to be done, especially as we look at outcomes for students with special needs, multilingual learners, and our Black, Latinx, Asian, including Hmong students. Significant work is already underway to address disparate outcomes, to close opportunity gaps and to ensure appropriate resources are allocated to address these challenges and continue moving us closer to our vision.

Reporting to the seven-member school board, the Superintendent of MMSD will work diligently to bring forth the vision and mission outlined in the District’s Strategic Framework. The strategic framework lifts up and articulates our commitment to anti-racism, inclusion and alliance to all children and their families and is grounded in our core values of excellence, belonging, racial equity and social justice, voice, focus and creativity. Our next Superintendent will be charged with moving forward three ambitious goals outlined in the framework:
– Every child is on track to graduate ready for college, career and community.
– The district and every school in it is a place where children, staff, and families thrive.
– African American children and youth excel in school.

The pillars of the framework articulate how we will continuously move forward these goals and include five major levers for change:
– Empower school communities
– Invest in people
– Streamline priorities
– Plan for the future
– Embrace innovation

The Superintendent will enter the district at a critical time when the foundation has been laid and key challenges have been identified; the new Superintendent will strengthen the systems, structures and framework to fully implement, monitor and sustain this work on behalf of every student in the district.
