CNP, MAAP HIres For Madison City Schools

The Madison City Board of Education held a special called meeting May 31 to approve some school and MCS admin promotions.
The actions all came from within, meaning replacements will be needed for those positions.

Traci Berry is now CNP Supervisor for Madison City Schools. She comes from Liberty Middle School where she served as manager of its CNP program since 2014 with prior CNP work at Bob Jones High School (16 years) and Horizon Elementary. Ms. Berry replaces Dylan Clark, who was elevated from supervisor to CNP Coordinator following the retirement of Marty Tatara.

New MAAPs were also approved today. That's the Madison Aspiring Administrator's Program which is somewhat of a training program in schools to become assistant principal or principal.

Ms. Massey and Ms. Russell were both MAAPs before being promoted to assistant principal at their respective schools.
Board members said MAAP has proved to be an excellent training program for future leaders of Madison City Schools. "It's great that Madison City Schools has such a deep bench of talent," said Travis Cummings.
