Nashua schools host job fairs, email parents in hopes to hire classroom substitutes


NASHUA – Nashua schools are in desperate need of substitute teachers. So desperate that the administration is even reaching out to parents, asking them to step in the classroom.

The district has also started hosting job fairs hoping to find interested candidates.

Mark Conrad, the Nashua school superintendent, believes the school system’s non-competitive pay for the reason they do not have enough people willing to help out.

“We’re less competitive than some of the surrounding communities and it really becomes a factor. In fact we had us our first substitute job fair on Friday and it was very successful.”

Anyone interested in being a substitute can go to the district’s central office October 21, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
