Nerad Selected As Madison School District's New Superintendent


Green Bay school superintendent Daniel Nerad has been chosen to become the Madison school district's next superintendent.

The Madison Metropolitan School District's Board of Education announced on Monday night that it unanimously selected Nerad as the new superintendent. Nerad has conditionally accepted, pending a final background check, contract negotiations and a site visit by a board delegation, according to a district news release.

Nerad is currently the superintendent of the Green Bay Area Public School District.

Nerad will replace current Superintendent Art Rainwater, who turned 65 on New Year's Day, and is scheduled to retire on June 30. Nerad is scheduled to take over on July 1.

A Madison School District spokesman said school board members voted unanimously to select Green Bay Schools Superintendent Dan Nerad as the next superintendent of Madison's public schools.

District spokesman Ken Syke said Nerad has conditionally accepted the position, pending a background check, contract negotiations and a site visit to Green Bay by a delegation from the school board.

The offer to Nerad was reported exclusively by, hours before the school district spokesman's announcement.

School Board members had identified Nerad, Miami-Dade Public Schools administrator Steve Gallon, and Boston Public Schools Budget Director James McIntyre as the three finalists for the position.

Nerad, 56, is a Wisconsin native who was named state superintendent of the year in 2006.
