Dr. John D. Millay Set to Become the District's First Appointed Superintendent of Schools

In November 2018, Martin County voters passed a referendum granting the Martin County School Board the authority to appoint the Superintendent of Schools. After a year-long search process, Dr. John D. Millay was selected by the School Board in September to become the first appointed superintendent of the Martin County School District. Dr. Millay will succeed Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord, who is retiring after serving two elected terms as the Superintendent of Schools.
 
 
Dr. Millay will be sworn into office during the Regular Meeting of the School Board on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, becoming the Martin County School District's twelfth Superintendent of Schools. Marsha Powers (District 2) and Michael DiTerlizzi (District 5) will also be sworn into office to begin their third elected terms as School Board Members.
 
 
The annual reorganization meeting of the School Board will also be held on Tuesday. Board Members will elect a Chair and Vice-Chair and approve the meeting schedule through November 2021.
 
 
Members of the public may attend the meeting in person or view the livestream beginning at 4 p.m.
