NASHUA – The school board plans to review its hiring process next week as well as present 2016 budget topics.

The board’s Human Resources Committee had compiled a list of suggestions for changes with the district’s hiring practices in July. Members will further discuss potential changes at the HR Committee meeting 6:30 Wednesday evening in the School Administration Building.

In a July 9 committee meeting, members Sandra Ziehm, Steven Haas and Dorothy Oden discussed the district’s hiring policy with Superintendent Mark Conrad. Oden said she saw room for improvement with the policy after attending recent personnel interviews.

Ziehm said she was interested in opportunities for increased committee oversight and participation into the hiring process.

The committee’s list of recommendations for changes included improvements to job descriptions, posting and advertising practices, candidate letters of recommendation, the “hiring team” process and qualifications for principal positions.

Oden submitted the 11-item list of suggestions to Conrad July 9.

School board members asked Conrad to check their suggestions against existing policies. The board will need to approve modifications to the existing policies should they decide to move forward with the changes, according to Conrad’s July 15 memo to the HR Committee.

The board will hold a work session Thursday evening at 6:30 immediately followed by a special BOE meeting. Both meetings will take place in the School Administration Building.

Members will discuss 2016 budget topics in the first meeting. The next meeting covers personnel recommendations, such as filling the assistant principal vacancy at Dr. Crisp Elementary, as well as the superintendent’s evaluation.
