Each year, schools in Madison City select Teacher of the Year (TOTY) and Staff Member of the Year (SMOTY) for exemplary service. The Central Office and Transportation Department also select a Staff Member of the Year. Winners are presented a $500 check and become eligible to be selected in the districtwide TOTY or SMOTY which will be announced at the beginning of the next school year. Here are the 2019-2020 TOTY and SMOTY winners, along with retirees we were able to give a formal farewell to. Slide show. ://youtu.bEhe/AM-RgQqSk
