Jennifer Massotti as she is sworn in as a Milford School District Board of Education member in 2023

On Monday, July 1, at their annual reorganization meeting, Jennifer Massotti was sworn in to a two-year term on the Milford School District Board of Education. Massotti has served on the board since May 2023 when she ran unopposed for a one-year special election after Kris Thompson stepped down from the board after moving out of the district. Massotti was also unopposed in this election.

Massotti was sworn in by School Board President Scott Fitzgerald. After she was sworn in, a vote was taken to adjourn the 2023-2024 Board of Education. Dr. Bridget Amory, Superintendent, was appointed temporary chairperson in order for the board to elect new officers.

“Just so we are clear with everybody, I want to make sure that you understand our procedure,” Fitzgerald said. “We are going to be looking for a motion for there to be an opportunity for us to nominate for the president of the board for this coming year.”

Fitzgerald was re-elected as president and Matt Bucher as Vice-President during the special meeting. Once that occurred, the 2024-2025 Milford School District Board of Education was reconvened.

After most of the agenda items were completed, the board approved Bucher as the district’s representative for the Delaware State Board of Education (DSBA).

The next meeting of the school board will be July 15 at 7 PM in the Gerald W. Thompson Center for Performing Arts at Milford High School. One of the items on the agenda is a discussion and vote on several changes to board policy, including Board Policy 6103 – Controversial/Sensitive Issues.
