The Nashua Board of Education takes important steps this month in searching for a new superintendent of schools and seeks input to assist in the development of a leadership profile.
School staff, and school and community members are invited to take part in a focus group, virtually through video conferencing software, to help identify the most important attributes the new leader of Nashua’s public schools should possess to be successful.
“Our focus groups will gather information from nearly 150 stakeholders, divided into groups of 6-12, 40 of whom will be selected through random lottery, based on a form,” said Jessica Brown, a member of the Nashua Board of Education and chair of its Ad Hoc Superintendent Search Committee.
Interested participants can find the focus group form here, as soon as it is available.
In addition to participating in a focus group, school staff, and school and community members are invited to provide feedback by participating either in a community forum or an online survey:
· Virtual Focus Groups: Multiple groups, Tuesday, March 30
· Virtual Community Forum, Tuesday, March 30
· Online Survey, Opens Friday, March 19 and Closes Friday, April 2
The Nashua Board of Education recently hired BWP & Associates, a national search firm from Libertyville, Illinois, to assist in conducting the search for a new superintendent. BWP will facilitate the focus groups and open community forum.
On January 25, the Nashua Board of Education approved a separation agreement with Jahmal Mosley, then the superintendent of schools, and announced Garth McKinney as superintendent until the close of the current school year.

The Nashua Board of Education plans to conclude the search in late spring, with the new superintendent assuming responsibilities on July 1.
