Milton superintendent to resign effective Nov. 4

Effective Friday, November 4th, James Jette will resign from his position as superintendent of Milton Public Schools.

Jette was put on paid administrative in July after his May arrest in Stoughton for a domestic violence charge. The charge was dropped in August after Jette’s girlfriend declined to testify, with Jette remaining on paid leave.

The school committee unanimously accepted his resignation at its meeting on Oct. 26th.

In a letter to Milton Public Schools families & staff, the committee announced: “We have reached the mutual decision that his resignation is in the best interest of everyone involved and affords Mr. Jette the opportunity to pursue a new chapter in his distinguished career.”

The letter commended Jette for 26 years of outstanding service to the Milton Public Schools, including accolades such as gains in student achievement and focus on equity at Milton High School and Jette’s leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Janet Sheehan will remain serving as acting superintendent through January 2023 while a search for Jette’s replacement begins.
