It’s an unusual situation for two of our local school systems to be interviewing superintendents at the exact same time. Huntsville City Schools and Madison City Schools are both considering nominees and applicants interviewing for the two positions, and we hope to help families involved to stay informed. The decisions made will affect the vast majority of students, parents, and educators in Huntsville and Madison County for years to come.
We’ll be adding in links to interviews and articles below – bookmark and visit often to stay in the know! Click on the orange links to read more.
