Madison school Superintendent Art Rainwater is officially off the clock. After 14 years of work in Madison, Rainwater stepped down from his post at noon on Monday.
“This will be the first year that I haven’t been involved with school since 1948, so it’s been my whole life,” Rainwater told WISC-TV.
Rainwater came to Madison in 1994 as deputy Superintendent.
He said all it took was a visit to the farmers’ market on the Saturday before his interview for him to realize he was home.
He took the helm as superintendent in 1999.
“I always felt it was a position that I could do the most, with the most children,” said Rainwater. “I think that’s certainly what drove me to be a superintendent.”
