NH DOE Regional Listening Tour

Over the last several months, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NH DOE) has been collaborating with stakeholders in an effort to build an understanding of the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the replacement to the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).

The NH DOE wants to gather input from a broader group of stakeholders. Please see the flyer below announcing the Regional Listening Tour that will start in November. The document also shares how to access a survey that has been posted to the NH DOE website on its ESSA page. Both of these offer opportunities to provide feedback focusing on the following four questions:

  1. What do you expect from New Hampshire’s educational system?
  2. What school characteristics are most important to you to improve student learning?
  3. What measures of school quality or student success should be included in a school accountability system?
  4. In your experience, what are the best ways for the State to support schools to serve the needs of all students?

The input received in the survey and at the forums during the Regional Listening Tour will be provided to the Accountability Task Force and other Advisory Teams. The input will be an invaluable resource in prioritizing our work and helping assist the NH DOE in developing its ESSA State Accountability and Support Plan.

School District Energy Options

Last fall, a group of interested Pittsfield citizens – including both members of the public and school officials – convened to review the district’s energy needs and consider options for future energy sources.

The group recommended to the School Board that an energy audit be conducted to provide the community with current information and efficiency recommendations.  Additionally, the group recommended that a wood energy feasibility study be completed to provide specific information to supplement the energy audit.  (Cost for the audit was shared by the district and Eversource; the feasibility study was completed at no cost to the district.)

Both reports were received by the district in early summer and are now available for review on the district website (www.pittsfieldnhschools.org).  Additionally, two community meetings have been scheduled to review the contents of the reports:

·         Energy Audit Report Meeting:  6:00 p.m., Wednesday, September 21, Pittsfield Middle High School Media Center

·         Wood Energy Feasibility Report Meeting:  6:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 19, Pittsfield Middle High School Media Center

Interested Pittsfield citizens are cordially invited to these meetings to learn more about energy and the schools and to have your energy questions answered.
