Press Release March 5, 2018
The Randolph County Board of Education has selected Dr. Tangela Madge as the lone finalist for the position of Superintendent.
Dr. Tangela Madge has worked in the educational arena for nearly 27 years. She has worked in the position of paraprofessional, teacher, counselor, assistant principal, principal, education consultant, director of curriculum and instruction, and assistant superintendent. She holds degrees and certificates in criminology, education, school counseling, and educational leadership. Dr. Madge has been employed with the Randolph County School System since 2013. As an educator in the Randolph County School System, Dr. Madge played a vital role in the system becoming a charter system, which will generate nearly half a million dollars over the next four years. She assisted Randolph County Elementary School’s academic team in obtaining the Striving Readers Literacy Grant, which provided over $200,000 for the school. Dr. Madge's educational philosophy centers on her belief that all students are capable of learning and it is the responsibility of all stakeholders to ensure that students achieve to their highest level.
For the past seven months, Dr. Madge has worked in the Randolph County School System as the interim superintendent. Her top two priorities are ensuring that teachers are equipped with the resources they needed to provide students a quality education; and restoring pride in Randolph County Schools through district-wide beautification projects. Since serving in this capacity, Dr. Madge has purchased additional technology for all schools (iPads, laptops, smart boards, and educational software), purchased state assessment preparation materials for all schools, and provided all instructional materials for the new evidence-based supplemental curriculum for grades K-12. To ensure that all of Randolph County Schools’ campuses are safe, Dr. Madge is in the process of installing alarm systems district-wide and bringing all buildings up to state safety codes. In addition, she is currently meeting with vendors in an effort to equip all buildings and school buses with security cameras. Dr. Madge has replaced the bleachers at the RCMHS football field, painted and repaired bleachers, concession stands and bathrooms at the RCMHS Baseball Field and painted/replaced lettering on school awnings and buildings. Dr. Madge has also enlisted the help of school coaches to create the first RCES Bulldog Basketball team (Grades 3-5).
Dr. Madge’s plan for the upcoming 2018-2019 school term includes: re-establishing the high school band and chorus, providing Spanish and chorus at the elementary and middle school levels, ensuring all RCS students have iPads/laptops, implementing a summer school reading program, utilizing retired educators to assist with academic achievement efforts, and providing a sound mentoring program for new faculty and staff members.
Information related to the selected candidate will be made available pursuant to the Georgia Open Records Act, should it be requested. In no sooner than 14 days, the school board shall convene to vote in a public meeting on the Superintendent selection.
