School Administrators of South Dakota (SASD)

President’s Message
Joel Jorgenson, Superintendent
Madison Central School Dist.


Welcome to the South Dakota School Superintendents Association (SDSSA). I am very honored to serve as your president for the 2023-2024 school year and I look forward to the opportunity to serve all members of  SDSSA.

I have had the opportunity and privilege to visit and network with many of you over the years. I also want to welcome all the new superintendents to SDSSA, and I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you may have as we move through this school year.

By way of background, I am currently in my 8th year as the Madison Central School District superintendent, and my 26th year as a superintendent for schools in South Dakota. Over the years, I have found it is the networking with other superintendents in  SDSSA that has proven to be a valuable asset in working though the challenges presented each year. For that reason, I encourage each of you to personally develop your own network with our SDSSA superintendents.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your president for the 2023-2024 school year, and together we can all make a difference in the lives of the students, staff, and communities we serve!

Have a great school year!


Joel Jorgenson
Madison Central School District
