Superintendent Dan Boyd will make his first public appearance at the School Board meeting today, according to Alachua County Public Schools.

Boyd has worked part-time since the start of the year while he still recovers from the extent of his injuries in a Thanksgiving crash, said spokeswoman Jackie Johnson.

Boyd was a passenger in a car that was struck by a semitrailer truck just before Thanksgiving. The car’s driver, Dr. William Canfield Evans Jr., died after the crash.

The superintendent worked three days last week and was in the office on Monday, Johnson said. He primarily uses a wheelchair to get around.

“It’s has been absolutely wonderful” having him back at work, Johnson said. “It’s like he hasn’t missed a beat.”
