Mary Burke to step down from Madison School Board

Madison school board member Mary Burke is stepping down from her position.

Burke has been a board member for the past seven years. In a news release, she cited personal and professional commitments for the reason she is stepping down.

“I am proud of the progress we’ve made and acknowledge the work still to be done. I have faith that the board will hire a great new superintendent, pass a transformative referendum and continue towards fulfilling our mission of every student graduating college, career and community-ready,” Burke said in a news release.

Board President Gloria Reyes thanked Burke for her service to the Madison Metropolitan School District.

“She has been a steady leader on this board, an advocate for public education, a mentor, and a dedicated public servant,” Reyes said in the release.

The board will discuss the process of filling Burke’s seat at its meeting Monday.
