    Dr. McKinney, Superintendent of Schools (Interim), and Mr. Donovan, Chief Operating Officer, are working with the Nashua Board of Education to craft a budget that reflects needs across many areas of the school district. Click here for their 2.17.2021 presentation. 

    In a 2 11 2021 letter, Mayor Donchess asked all divisions except the school district to adopt a flat, 0% increase, operating budget this year. He is allowing a 1.5% for the schools for two reasons:

    • Schools have received significantly lower increases than other City divisions over the last five years
    • Schools need added resources to support learning loss during the pandemic

    To keep pace with the budget development process, school district data and information will be published in an online notebook for your reference. Documents will be added as they become available; click here to read the notebook.

The Nashua Board of Education-approved operating budget increased the District's total operating budget by 2.25% over the previous year.
