The Board of Education announced Tuesday that Oakdale Elementary School principal Mark Johnson has been hired as the district's new director of special services.
Donna Maynard is retiring from her position as director of special services after 24 years with the district.
The Montville school district department of special services oversees a variety of support services for students, including special education, speech, school psychology and gifted and talented education.
Acting Superintendent Brian Levesque said at Tuesday's school board meeting that Johnson rose above other candidates for the position. He described the principal as having a passion for special education.
The district will post the job opening for Oakdale Elementary School principal today, said Levesque. He expects to interview candidates in late October.
