None of Madison Board of Education’s five members responded to a Journal-News request seeking comment regarding Huff’s taking leave, when the leave began or what steps the board plans to fill the superintendent’s position in her absence.
The board is scheduled to meet 6 p.m. Thursday.
BCESC Superintendent Chris Brown said “I don’t have anything to add until after the board meeting on Thursday. I should know more after the meeting.”
County educational service centers in Ohio often fill the role of locating temporary superintendents to help their member school districts when a vacancy requires an interim district leader. Many occasions find the job being filled by a retired or otherwise former superintendent who applies for the job.
“The board is asking the ESC (eduational services center) for help if needed,” she said.
Huff’s contract runs from Aug. 1, 2019 to July 31, 2024.
Smaller enrollment school systems such as Madison, which has 1,445 students, often do not have assistant superintendents.
Huff said the Madison district remains in good hands in her absence.
“The staff at Madison are very competent, I don’t anticipate any issues,” she said.
