Less than two months before he was slated to become Madison’s next superintendent, Matthew Gutierrez is backing out of the job. Late Monday, the Madison School Board announced Gutierrez was rescinding his acceptance of the Madison position. Gutierrez, 39, who is superintendent of Seguin, Texas, schools, was supposed to begin leading the district June 1.  The abrupt decision comes as Wisconsin’s second-largest school district grapples with the statewide closure of schools to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  The public health crisis is the reason Gutierrez gave School Board President Gloria Reyes as to why he could not go forward with the Madison job, according to a statement from the Madison School District announcing his decision. view article arw
