BANGOR, Wis. (WKBT) — The Bangor School District has a new superintendent.

“After engaging in an extensive search process, the Bangor School District Board of Education is pleased to announce that David Brokopp has agreed to a contract as the next Superintendent for the District,” said the district on its Facebook page.

Brokopp has been the principal at Lakeview Elementary School in the Whitewater Unified School District since 2011. He was also the Whitewater District Safety Coordinator. Prior to working in Whitewater, he was the 7-12 technology education teacher in the Clinton School District for 10 years.

Brokopp enrolled in the educational leadership and policy analysis executive Ph.D. cohort through the University of Wisconsin – Madison and has completed his superintendent certification. He anticipates completing his PhD later this fall.

“David, his wife and his two middle school age daughters are looking forward to a move to Bangor.  He shared that he has been incredibly impressed with the community pride in and support of the Bangor school district. He hopes to move the district forward in a way that continues to honor the rich traditions and values of the district,” according to the Facebook post.

He will start July 1 after the retirement of Bangor Superintendent Dave Laehn.
