MMSD Superintendent Cheatham sends letter to families about decision to leave district
Madison Metropolitan School District Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham sent a letter to parents sharing her plans to resign from her current position.
Cheatham announced her resignation Wednesday morning after six years with the district. She plans to leave the Madison area at the end of August to pursue a new opportunity at Harvard.
In the letter, Cheatham says she has never had a more fulfilling job than serving as the superintendent in Madison.
“Working with and for you toward our common vision has been one of the greatest experiences of my life,” Cheatham said.
Cheatham highlighted some of the changes to the district in the past six years in the letter and talked about the new agenda set by the district this past fall.
“As difficult as change can be, I am confident that this is a natural time for a transition in leadership,” Cheatham said. “We have a committed and talented staff and a community that is engaged and motivated to continue to move our district forward. MMSD is well positioned to bring its vision to life with and for the community it serves.”
The Madison Metropolitan School Board is expected to appoint an interim superintendent in the coming weeks.
