A Monroe County School Superintendent Change measure was on the August 24, 2010 ballot in Monroe County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 8,712 (63.8%)Approveda
  • NO 4,941 (36.1%)[1]

This measure sought to change the way the superintendent is elected in the county. The position had been elected, but since this measure was approved the county school board will instead appoint the superintendent. Confusion with the ballot language has been brought up, no where in the actual text of the measure does the word 'appointed' appear and proponents felt that this could confuse residents on what the issue is really trying to change. County residents could have tried to petition the courts to change the language, but it ended up staying.[2]
