Superintendent Greg Maass announced the choice for principal this afternoon.


Marblehead Superintendent of Schools Greg Maass told teachers and staff this afternoon that finalist Layne Millington, the current principal at Swampscott High, will be the new principal at Marblehead High School.

We will have more information about this news later. For now here is a press release from Marblehead schools:

Layne Millington brings seven years of high school leadership experience to Marblehead Public Schools.

Marblehead Public Schools announces, after a comprehensive search and site visit, that Layne Millington has been offered the High School Principalship, effective July 1, 2013.  The new instructional leader is coming from Swampscott where he has been lead principal and has prior high school leadership experience from Belmont. His thoughtful collaborative style and many accomplishments will surely make him a strong asset to Marblehead’s high school.

Superintendent Greg Maass of Marblehead Public Schools is pleased to bring Layne Millington on board.  Millington is a seasoned high functioning Principal who has many accomplishments. He has led the NEASC accreditation process in his last position. His strong financial background from the private sector ensures his strong budget building skills. Layne comes with the knowledge of the new X2/Aspen Student Management System that Marblehead is implementing this spring.  He has also been very successful with building METCO programs in his past school districts.  His colleagues and peers had positive comments to describe him, such as: he is genuine, a decision maker, he truly cares about all students and faculty, he has an open door policy, he never turns anyone away, he is a great listener, he is not afraid to make effective change.  Everything that Layne Millington has to offer will strengthen Marblehead’s high performing high school.

Marblehead’s screening and interview committees are pleased to learn about the selection of Layne Millington for High School Principal and look forward to Marblehead Public Schools continued excellence in serving the students and community of Marblehead.

I would also add, the fact that you had to specifically name the "Bay Area" as the place you were moving back from, tells me everything I need to know. You are much better off in name brand Marblehead with all of its self-absorbed cuteness and look at me "I live in MHD!!!" bumper stickers.

Thank you Dones1968! I was going to tee off on that "Bay Area" comment myself, but I didn't want my post to get too long. Who cares that he/she moved from the Bay Area? No one. It has no bearing on that illogical point he/she is trying to make other than for them to name drop "Bay Area".

Having Mr. Millington as principal at the high school for three years was the best thing that has happened in this town. Its time to look at the administration and they need to take the blame for this one. I wish Mr. Millington the best in Marblehead. They are lucky to have him.

The administration (superintendent) WAS given the blame and fired.

Sports can get funding from the teams themselves and with limited funding from the schools. How about some funding into the EDUCATION?
