In a letter to addressed the board's chair, Trisha Korkosz, Dubisz indicated that his decision was "final" and related to "personal reasons."

"I do not make this decision lightly," he wrote in the letter to Korkosz. "It pains me to realize that I will not be fulfilling the commitments that I made to the citizens of Hooksett. I apologize to the students, citizens, board members and the Hooksett School District staff. I wish the best for all Hooksett students and citizens."

Dubisz could not be reached for comment.

"I'm very saddened to see him go," said Korkosz. "I learned a great deal from him about education during our tenure together on the Hooksett School Board. I wish him all the best of luck."
