HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Today is Inauguration Day for Matt Massey.  He is set to be sworn in as the new Madison County School Superintendent.

He will replace David Copeland who was voted out of office.

Massey hasn’t waited to speak publicly about his intentions for when he takes over the job.

Three weeks ago, Massey presented his plan for capital improvements in the district to the school board. Those did not include a new $46 million high school in Monrovia.

Massey has been voicing his concerns over the proposal for a new school for a long time, arguing it would hurt both the districts finances and academic programs.

He wants to focus on improving existing schools such as Sparkman High School. He says that these projects should increase the quality of the educational experience for students. The school board, however, already approved the decision to build a new school in Monrovia and the site of it has already been prepped.

Matt Massey will be inaugurated as Superintendent of Madison County Schools in the Saturn V Hall in the Davidson Center at 4:00 pm.

State School Board Member Mary Scott Hunter will be swearing in Matt Massey.
