HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) –  Huntsville area business leaders will get an update on the state of their schools this morning.

This has become an annual event for the Huntsville-Madison County Chamber of Commerce.

The “State of the Schools” address has become an annual event for the Huntsville-Madison County Chamber of Commerce.

The event is unique because it involves all three superintendents from Madison County’s public school systems.

Huntsville city schools superintendent, Casey Wardynski will deliver a one-on-one address later this year.

But this morning, he will be at the Jackson Center along with Madison City Superintendent, Dee Fowler and, new Madison County Superintendent Matt Massey.

Each will give local business leaders a snapshot of how his system is doing, its achievements and challenges.

For Wardynski, that will likely involve an update on Huntsville’s massive capital plan. From Fowler, we could expect to hear an update on the Bob Jones High School renovations. The newest member of the group, Matt Massey, will almost certainly reference the new Monrovia High School.

The proposed new school has become a point of contention between Madison County’s recently-installed superintendent and other county leaders.  While his board of education and county commission want the project to continue, Massey says the money could be better spent elsewhere in the system.

We’ll be at this morning’s address, and have more later today on WHNT News 19.
