New Hampshire Department of Education

The New Hampshire Department of Education is considered a leading State Education Agency in the move to create next generation learning opportunities. CSSR has collaborated with the NHDOE in its move away from seat time as the basis for earning course credit, toward demonstration of mastery as the required method for earning credit. Specifically, CSSR has focused on the leadership challenges faced in implementing Extended Learning Opportunities (ELOs), and the deeper learning associated with student generated, in-depth projects. The work of the New England Network for Personalization and Performance (The NETWORK), our i3 funded grant project, was built on the success of working with the NHDOE.
