    Dear Parents and Citizens of Nashua,

    My name is Garth McKinney and I am honored to serve as the Interim Superintendent of Schools. I am excited to continue working in the Nashua School District after serving as the Assistant Superintendent for Elementary for four years and Assistant Principal at Main Dunstable Elementary School for two years.

    In my new role, I plan to provide leadership, communication, and consistency during this difficult time.  While we face a number of challenges in the months ahead, I know that we can work together towards positive outcomes.

    Thank you.
