MASA members,

Earlier this morning, the MASA Executive Board of Directors formally and unanimously accepted the resignation of Dr. Brian Metcalf, superintendent of Grand Ledge Public Schools, from his position on the MASA Executive Board, effective immediately. This action followed meeting with Dr. Metcalf in executive session Thursday of this week.

The MASA Board denounces the statements recently made by Dr. Metcalf on his Facebook page regarding the death of Mr. George Floyd and feel strongly as the governing board of this association that his words do not represent the mission and vision of MASA and its members.

The Board will meet in the near future to discuss plans for Dr. Metcalf’s replacement and to formally appoint a new association president for the 2020-21 year.

We continue to work extremely hard to ensure that MASA is providing quality leadership and services to all of our members. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the association. If you have any additional questions or concerns, we ask that you contact Executive Director Chris Wigent, via email at
