Nashua board will consider reducing size of school building committee
The full board meets tonight at 7 p.m. in Nashua High North’s Board Room. In addition to regular reports from Superintendent Mark Conrad and the chairmen of the board’s subcommittees, members will review a proposal from the Board of Aldermen to reduce the size of the Joint Special School Building Committee (JSSBC) from 18 members to a committee of eight members.
Board members will also discuss establishing a new Instructional Technology Committee. In 2010, Nashua’s former Instructional Technology Committee reviewed and recommended a district-wide plan for classroom technology. But over the past four years, many more textbooks and teaching programs have begun using online resources and materials as supplements.
On Tuesday, the Finance and Operations Committee will meet at 7:30 p.m. at the School Administration Building.
The committee will also review the policy for Kronos, the new electronic time clock program that city employees are required to use.
The full board meets again on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in the Board Room at Nashua High North for another workshop on Superintendent Mark Conrad’s recommended budget for 2015.
The BOE’s Human Resources Committee meets Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at the School Administration Building .
The committee will review a proposal from the administration to restructure several jobs in the Central Office and the Information Technology Department. The proposal shifts employees to different jobs and would replace a systems administrator with a systems developer/data base integrator. No additional spending would be required.
