Changes are ahead for Meade County Schools as Superintendent Dr. John Millay announced his planned retirement Tuesday (1/14) night during the regular monthly meeting of the Meade County Board of Education.
In a letter that was written to board members, Millay stated that he was beyond proud of all the things the district had accomplished, as well as the positive culture initiatives the district has continually worked on.
“We have super talented administrators, principals, faculty and support staff that will continue to move the schools and district forward and to new levels of success for our students,” said Millay in the letter. “I know that students have always been our primary focus as it should always continue to be,” Millay said.
Millay is retirement is effective at the end of the day on February 29. He plans to do all that is necessary to create a very smooth transition to an interim leader that will be needed from March 1 until that time when a permanent superintendent can be hired.
