Nashua’s superintendent finalists make pitch to public

NASHUA – Nashua’s two finalists for superintendent of schools, Connie Brown and Jahmal Mosley, each made their case Thursday evening for the position.

Both candidates, in an event hosted by the Board of Education, participated in separate question-and-answer sessions using written questions from the public and board members.

Mosley, who is currently assistant superintendent for curriculum and administration at Sharon Public Schools in Massachusetts, stressed the importance of studying data to develop a thorough understanding of student performance. One way to do that, he said, is to take advantage of i-Ready, a K-12 adaptive diagnostic for reading and mathematics, though he also advocated for "triangulating" data from different sources to get a more well-rounded picture.
"When you’re really able to delve into the data and look at students deficiencies, we can then go back and look at curriculum and see how we can adjust it to meet the needs of students who are struggling," Mosley said.
