Madison schools superintendent Carlton Jenkins retiring

Dr. Carlton Jenkins, superintendent of the Madison Metropolitan School District, will retire at the end of July, according to a report from WMTV NBC-15.

Jenkins’ career in education has lasted for more than 30 years. He served as superintendent in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, and Saginaw, Michigan. He was also the chief academic officer for Atlanta’s public school system. During his time in Michigan, Jenkins was president of the African American Superintendents Association.

According to the district, Jenkins was on a two-year contract, receiving a one-year extension, which would end over the summer, which means he will retire without breaking his contract.
