Board Thanks Burke for Seven Years of Dedicated Service

Madison School Board member Mary Burke announced today that she will step down from her position.

“After seven years of serving the community on the Madison Board of Education, my personal and professional commitments do not allow me the time and energy needed to fulfill my term.  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. I want to thank our teachers and staff for their dedication to supporting all students to achieve their potential,” Burke said.

“Mary’s commitment to our schools is undeniable. I want to thank Mary on behalf of the whole board for her service to our district,” Board President Gloria Reyes said. “She has been a steady leader on this board, an advocate for public education, a mentor, and a dedicated public servant.”

The process for filling a vacant seat on the Board of Education is governed by board policy, and the board will discuss that process at its meeting Monday night.
