Michael Rossi, Madison Superintendent Addresses Leaving District


MADISON, NJ -- As previously reported by TAPinto Madison, Michael Rossi, Superintendent accepted a position Thursday evening Oct.13 with the Sparta Public School District in a similar role. 

Rossi gave official notice to the Madison school board Friday morning.

"It is with mixed emotions that I announce I have accepted a position in Sparta Township, signing a contract last evening.  Words cannot express the deep gratitude I have in being able to have led such a fine educational organization and work in a wonderful borough.  When I began my tenure here the teaching and learning field faced unprecedented reforms and challenges.  Working together as committed stakeholders, we responded in a positive and proactive manner developing new curricula, revising our teacher evaluation process, and preparing for an entirely new testing system.  More importantly, we have provided students with tremendous opportunities both in the classroom and within extracurricular endeavors," said Rossi in a statement to the Madison learning community Friday.

"Clearly when making a move in this role there is protocol and a series of things that need to happen.  I had been in contact throughout the process with the Madison Board," said Rossi.  "As you can imagine, one does not given formal notice or announce a new position until they actually have it.   I was officially offered the new role late last night by the Sparta Board of Education," Rossi added. 

"It is never easy to leave a place that is as special as Madison.  However, at this point in my career, I believe the location and compelling similarities with my new district is the best decision for both my family and me.  I am very confident the transition will be a smooth one," his statement read.

Unofficially, Rossi's last day with Madison is scheduled for Nov. 30.
