In addition, he helped grow the district to over 400 students with a current enrollment of 1,550; created a culture that is focused on people and the whole student that has resulted in North Fond du Lac becoming a destination district for students, families, and staff; advocated for public education influencing changes at the local, state, and federal levels; and much more.” 

Sadoff holds a master’s in educational leadership and administration from Marian University as well as his superintendent license. He also has a Bachelor of Science in education and history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Sadoff also served in the United States Army and is a Gulf War Veteran.
