Rochester School Department releases names of Superintendent finalists

The Rochester School Department has announced finalists to replace the outgoing Superintendent, Kyle Repucci.

According to Nick Bellows, Screening Committee Chair, over approximately two weeks, the Screening Committee met on several occasions to review applications and to interview candidates for the position of Superintendent of Schools.

The Screening Committee reviewed all the completed applications and subsequently selected several applicants who were then invited to meet with the Committee for a preliminary interview.

Bellows reports that the Screening Committee enjoyed conversations with the applicants who represented a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. Following the preliminary interviews and after much discussion and consideration, the Committee voted to recommend the following candidates for further consideration by the Rochester School Board.
