603 Bright Futures Survey

The New Hampshire Department of Education wants to hear from you. The 603 Bright Futures Survey is an opportunity for you to have your voice heard. These surveys will gather actionable feedback around learning models, school climate, family and community engagement, and other topics in order to understand the successes and challenges of the recent school year and plan for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. The NHDOE has partnered with Panorama Education to support the 603 Bright Futures Survey. If you have any questions about the survey program, please reach out to Panorama at support+nhdoe@panoramaed.com

The 603 Bright Futures Survey is also how schools will gather their Special Education Family data in support of the NHDOE’s federal reporting for Indicator 8. This year all families are eligible to participate in the survey.

Choose Love

On May 21, 2019 Pittsfield School District was proud to welcome Scarlett Lewis, mother of Jesse Lewis. She started the Choose Love Movement to spark kindness, compassion and forgiveness. Her message resonated with our 5-12 graders and our staff. Choose Love has partnered with social emotional learning (SEL) experts to present a preK-12 SEL curriculum, a home curriculum and a set of community resources. 

From the Choose Love website: 

The Choose Love Enrichment Program™ has been included in the first state-wide school safety plan and will be provided to schools across New Hampshire. After collaborating with Scarlett Lewis, Chief Movement Officer of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has made Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) a priority in the New Hampshire School Safety Preparedness Task Force 2018 Report.

 The Choose Love Enrichment Program™ is a year-long, comprehensive pre-K through 12th grade, evidence-based SEL classroom program teaching children how to Choose Love in any circumstance and is available at no cost to educators and schools. Pittsfield School District approved Choose Love as out PreK-12 SEL curriculum on June 4, 2019.
