MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Madison County school system is considering changing how it chooses its superintendent.

The Madison County School Board discussed going from an elected superintendent to an appointed one.

Board president, Mary Stowe, said they may ask the state superintendent for permission to make the change, if it's allowed under the Accountability Act.

Stowe said they want to do what's best for the system.

"We just feel like with the school system as large as ours that we need to be able to have the best person possible with the highest qualifications to run our system," she said.

Stowe said the board is considering having a public meeting on the issue to get input from the community.
