Derby school board to review ‘nepotism’ policy

DERBY >> Whether relatives of Derby Board of Education members can be hired for positions in the school system school will be the focus of a policy meeting this week.

The school board’s policy subcommittee will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday (Oct.8) at Derby Middle School to review and discuss the board’s policy on nepotism.

The policy meeting comes in light of the board hiring Scott Marcucio, a Derby resident and son of longtime board Chairman Ken Marcucio, at a meeting in June. Scott Marcucio was hired as a social studies teacher at Derby High School. The board voted 5-1 in favor of Marcucio getting the job, with board member Jim Gildea casting the sole dissenting vote.

Some said bringing Marcucio onboard was a violation of the board’s own policy about hiring family members.
