Clay County Assistant Principal Named 2020 Florida Assistant Principal of the Year Finalist

The Florida Department of Education announced Clay County’s Matthew Boyack as a finalist in the running for the state’s Assistant Principal of the Year title. He joins two other candidates, one from neighboring Duval County and the other from Martin County, as a finalist for the top spot.

Matthew Boyack is currently an Assistant Principal at Oakleaf High School. He previously taught at Orange Park High School as a Social Studies Teacher for ten years before making the move to administration. Boyack was Clay County’s 2015 Teacher of the Year and has also been recognized as a standout athletics coach winning the Don Hall Coach of the Year Award in 2015.

“I am honored, humbled, and excited to be selected as a state finalist for Assistant Principal of the Year. Clay County is a phenomenal place to work and I could not have achieved this honor without the help of so many great mentors and teachers. I am so grateful to be able to work collaboratively with our amazing teachers, leaders, and community members to put the needs of our students first,” said Matthew Boyack.

“Over the past decade, it has been a pleasure to see Mr. Boyack grow professionally through his tenure at Clay County District Schools. He is an authentic leader who is always willing to go above and beyond for the betterment of our students in the classroom and on the field. Mr. Boyack is an exemplary administrator and it is an honor to see him recognized by the state for his hard work and dedication to our school system and community,” said Superintendent David Broskie.

The Florida Department of Education will announce the 2020 Assistant Principal of the Year later this month.
