“The New England Secondary School Consortium goals are consistent with high school redesign efforts in New Hampshire and with the Department’s commitment to ensure that every student will graduate with the knowledge and the skills needed to be successful in college and careers of the 21st century. Whether they decide to start their careers after they graduate or continue their education beyond high school, all students deserve a rigorous secondary education that prepares them for postsecondary education and meaningful careers. Graduating competent students not only benefits our society, but also better prepares students for future careers and citizenship. Our state’s collaboration with the Consortium will help us create a system that can build the capacity of all our administrators and teachers to better identify and address the learning needs of individual students.”
