The Concord School Board will vote on the nomination of Kyle Repucci, currently the superintendent of schools in Rochester, as the next principal of Broken Ground Elementary School at its meeting Monday evening.

Repucci has been a superintendent in the Lilac City for the past five years and was previously an assistant superintendent for three years, according to the district’s nomination document. He also spent a total of 10 years as a secondary school teacher and then as a secondary school principal in Epping.

Repucci would replace Susan Lauze at Broken Ground, who is retiring after more than twenty years at the helm. During budget workshops, a proposal by Superintendent Kathleen Murphy to combine the principal functions of Broken Ground and the adjacent Mill Brook school was withdrawn after outcry from teachers and skepticism from the board. The search for Lauze’s replacement began in March. The nomination includes an annual salary of approximately $139,000.

The school board will also provide an update on the progress of its committees in choosing construction leaders and creating a design for the new high school. A new cost estimate for the project is expected in early June.

The meeting will begin at 5:45 p.m., when Repucci will introduce himself and answer questions from the board.
