NSD Awarded CMF Kids Grant

The Nashua School District is one of four school partners recently awarded a CMF Kids grant award. The $270,000 three-year grant will fund special education professional development focused on evidenced-based, trauma-informed care to help reduce challenging student behaviors.
Of the 10,000 students enrolled in the Nashua School District, the special education staff supports about 2,000 students.
CMF Kids, located in Manchester, is a program of the Crotched Mountain Foundation. 
“We appreciate the Crotched Mountain Foundation for generously supporting our elementary school teachers and paraeducators,” said Mario Andrade, Superintendent of Nashua School District. “The funding will ensure we continue to cultivate a productive, positive, and safe teaching and learning environment for each of our students. At the same time, we are encouraged to have the opportunity to strengthen ties with CMF Kids, who share with us a commitment to empowering students to live, learn, and thrive in their own environments. Again, we are grateful for the support.”
