MANCHESTER, N.H. – On Tuesday, May 26, the Manchester Board of School Committee approved the promotion of Forrest Ransdell to permanent principal at Hallsville School. Ransdell had been serving as interim principal at the elementary school since last fall.

Prior to his assignment to Hallsville, he spent eight years at the Middle School at Parkside. He also worked for six years at Manchester Central High School.
“Hallsville is a wonderful neighborhood school steeped in tradition and history,” Ransdell said. “This is a tremendous opportunity to help build upon the caring, success and community already existing.”
