The board unanimously selected Dr. Mark Noffsinger to serve until December 31, 2016.

He has been a resident of the district for 24 years, has three children who have graduated from Mattawan, and has several grandchildren who are or soon will be Mattawan students.
The Board also appointed Trustee Dr. Maureen Ford to serve as Treasurer of the Board.
Mattawan Consolidated School's approximately 3,800 students receive a rigorous academic experience. The four schools that comprise the school district are centrally located, providing easy access to each school and maximizing interaction among the students and staff.
A rigorous curriculum and research-based instructional strategies are the foundation for the learning environment for students at Mattawan Consolidated School District. As a Professional Learning Community, teachers, students, parents, and community members collaborate to ensure an exemplary program. Our district's core curriculum exceeds the Michigan Department of Education requirements in all courses and integrates core state and national standards within the subject content. In addition, the district offers enrichment programs to challenge high-achieving students and a comprehensive special education program in order to meet the needs of all learners.
Exemplary curriculum, strong instructional standards for teaching and learning, opportunities for involvement in extra-curricular activities and community programs, unparalleled parent support, highly-qualified professional staff and support personnel, all combine to assist each child in succeeding in reaching their full potential.
We're pleased to have this opportunity to provide you with information about our District and the activities available to our students and school community. Welcome!
