Assistant Superintedent of Schools Anita Rutlin, after serving the Madison Public School system for nine years, including two stints as acting superintendent, has announced her intention to retire.
Madison Public School Superintendent Thomas Scarice said Rutlin would have preferred no public announcement, no press release, but at the Board of Education meeting earlier this week, he said he just could not pass up the opportunity to thank his colleague who welcomed him and mentored him in his first months on the job in the top spot.
Other board members agreed.
"You are the best," said Madison Board of Education member John Dean. "I would trust you with any job."
Scarice said Rutlin will be on the job for at least two more months before officially retiring.
