Extended Learning Opportunities/Work-Based Learning

Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 1-4 p.m.
NHSBA Offices, 25 Triangle Park Drive, Concord, NH 03301

Join NHSBA, Reaching Higher NH, and the ELO Network in a rich workshop on extended learning opportunities (ELOs).

Summary & goals
Extended Learning Opportunities (ELOs) allow New Hampshire students to earn credit through learning experiences that happen outside the traditional classroom. The primary goals of the workshop include:

  • To provide an overview of ELOS, what they are and what they are not;
  • Conduct a walk-through of a sample district ELO policy;
  • Engage in deep dialogue with an expert panel in order to help schools develop an action plan for ELOs in their communities.

Audience
This is a wonderful opportunity to begin transformative dialogue within your schools, districts and communities. Further, this session invites a wide audience including, but not limited to, administrators, teachers, principals, school board members, and businesses.


 

Dual Enrollment Opportunities for Students

Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 1-4 p.m.
NHSBA Offices, 25 Triangle Park Drive, Concord, NH 03301

“Dual enrollment” programs are college courses taught by instructors from the community college system of New Hampshire (CCSNH) in which high school students earn college credits while students are still enrolled in high school or a career technical education center. In 2017 new legislation was enacted that allows New Hampshire 11th and 12th grade high school students to take up to two concurrent or dual enrollment STEM or STEM related designated courses each academic year free of charge. This workshop will focus on academic opportunities, funding mechanisms, and what school board members need to know about credits earned and access to these programs for students.
