Madison Board of Education Group Photo

Welcome!

 

Our mission: "Every school will be a thriving school that prepares every student to graduate from high school college, career and community ready.”

Our Strategic Framework lays out a roadmap for our work. Visit our district's "About" page for some quick facts and district overview information.

The Madison Board of Education is a seven-member policymaking body. Members are elected in April to serve staggered three-year terms in office.

Board of Education duties:

  • Establish policies for the Madison Metropolitan School District
  • Watch meetings live on YouTubeApprove and oversee the school district budget
  • Serve as good stewards of taxpayer funds, and levy taxes as needed
  • Hire and supervise the Superintendent of Schools
  • Establish board committees and vote on board executives
  • Lobbying lawmakers and advocating on behalf of the Madison schools
  • Representing constituents, soliciting input on key decisions and listening to concerns and needs of the community

To reach all seven board members, please use the following group e-mail address: board@madison.k12.wi.us

Need a language interpreter at a board meeting?

Please let us know one week in advance by either calling 663-8440 to speak to Claudia Verhagen or e-mailing her at cmverhagen@madison.k12.wi.us and tell us what meeting for which you will need the service and in what language.  If you have a prepared statement ahead of time, that helps us too.  We have MMSD Bilingual Resource Specialists (BRS) in 12 languages.  We will assign support as requested.  Please note that there is a time limit on public appearances of six minutes for those using interpretation services.
