We are very pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Jay Richard as the new Principal of Rundlett Middle School. Mr. Richard will replace Mrs. Paulette Fitzgerald, who is retiring at the end of the school year. We thank her for her years of service as the school leader.
Mr. Richard comes to us from Oyster River Middle School in Durham, NH, where he has been the principal for 14 years. In addition to his years of leadership expertise, he also has the unique experience with the building of a new middle school in the community. He has been recognized for his leadership skills by the New Hampshire Association of School Principals as a NH Principal of the Year.
Mr. Richard has roots in Concord, through his parents and grandparents. He is very excited about the opportunity to join the leadership team in the Concord School District. During his recent visit to Rundlett Middle School, he met with students, parents, and staff, and exuded a calm, steadfast and highly committed presence.
Mr. Richard will begin on July 1, 2023.
Please join us in welcoming Mr. Richard to the Concord School District.
