This is interesting. SAU 39 (Amherst, Mont Vernon and Souhegan), with its deep foundation in the fundamentals of its education mission, has played a leadership role in implementing the new higher academic standards and competency-based learning. NHDOE has sent 2Revolutions to document this as part of a larger projects. There will be lots of good uses for the material 2Revolutions gathers. Here’s the UL coverage:
AMHERST — A filming crew will be making its way into the local schools next week as part of an initiative by the New Hampshire Department of Education to chronicle exemplary schools throughout the state.
According to a letter sent to local parents, the state agency requested that SAU 39 participate in the project, which will record innovative schools and commendable practices that could serve as models for educational facilities throughout New Hampshire.
Nicole Heimarck, director of curriculum and professional development at SAU 39, has described the production as “an exciting opportunity to showcase the great work of our students and teachers.”
