Overview

  • Welcome to the Nashua Board of Education (BOE) page of the Nashua School District website. The Board's role is to oversee and guide the Nashua School District by setting policy, approving curriculum and assessment materials and strategies, setting and approving human resource decisions, negotiating union contracts, overseeing operations and finance decisions, and establishing the annual operating budget. The information and links provided on this page are designed to provide details of the Board's activities in support of the District's mission.   

    The Nashua Board of Education can be contacted at: boe@nashua.edu

    Note: Emails sent to the boe@nashua.edu email address are considered public correspondence with the Board under New Hampshire's Right-to-Know Law, RSA Chapter 91-A.  The email will be noted in the Board meeting minutes, and be accessible to members of the public; therefore, we caution writers of emails to be guarded about including student personal information, such as their names. 

     



    The Board consists of nine members who are each elected to four-year terms. Members serve city-wide and terms of office are offset such that either five or four positions are elected every two years. Since 2013, two high school representatives serve the Board. NHS North students and NHS South students vote each year to elect a student representative from each school to serve as non-voting members of the Board.  

    The Nashua Board of Education meetings are held generally the third Wednesday of each month, according to an established schedule.

    The Board has five standing committees: Budget; Curriculum and Evaluation; Finance and Operations; Human Resources; and Policy, and members serve on nine other Committees: Joint Special School Building Committee (JSSBC), JSSBC Construction Projects, Education Council, Charter School Committee, Health & Wellness Committee, Professional Development Council, Middle School Institute, and Healthcare.  

    Keep in mind that the date of these meetings is subject to change because of holidays and members' availability. To confirm meeting schedule, please click on calendar.
