NH awarded $65,000 to aid students for 'innovation economy'

CONCORD — Four national organizations have awarded the state Education Department $65,000 to devise reforms to prepare students for the “innovation economy,” state officials said.

The grant is designed to encourage the development of college- and career-ready students.

The grant comes from the Council of Chief State School Officers, the National Conference of State Legislators, State Higher Education Executive Officers, and the National Governor’s Association Center for Best Practices.

“We are grateful that the department will receive support to continue to help New Hampshire’s students prepare for the jobs of the 21st century while also supporting our most underserved students, closing achievement gaps and improving the quality of instruction while also protecting local control,” said Deputy Education Commissioner Paul Leather.
