The Milford Public School district is pleased to announce the appointment of Josh Marko as the interim principal at Jonathan Law High School for the start of the 2021-22 academic year. Mr. Marko will fill the spot left open by the departure of Mr. Fran Thompson, who recently was named assistant superintendent of personnel in the Wallingford public school district.
