MADISON COUNTY, Ala. - Madison County school leaders have chosen Allen Perkins to be their new superintendent.
After weeks of one on one interviews with five men vying for the position, board members voted unanimously to promote Perkins.
Perkins is currently the Director of Equity and Innovation at Madison County Schools. He has been with the Madison County School system since 2002, working as a teacher, an assistant principal, a middle school principal, and as the Supervisor of Instruction.
"I am humbled and excited to be selected as the Superintendent of Madison County Schools," said Superintendent Perkins in a statement. "It is a privilege I do not take lightly. Madison County is a district with great students, teachers, schools, and communities. I look forward to the challenges ahead and will work tirelessly to serve Madison County Schools."
Perkins will serve out the remainder of Matt Massey's term, which expires in 2022. Madison County school leaders say the position will pay between $155,000 and $160,000 a year.
His projected start date is November 4, 2019. He's expected to give a recommendation to the board for who will be his replacement.
