Next Steps NH
The Next Steps NH project provided professional development and coaching to selected New Hampshire high schools for the purpose of increasing the graduation rate of students with disabilities, and students at risk. This was done through implementing evidence-informed transition planning practices that helped students prepare for college, career, and adult life.
This website was part of the project and housed all tools and resources developed as part of the project. The website is now supported by the NH Department of Education and managed at Keene State College.
Our school website has a link to the Next Steps NH website. The website was a good outcome of the project. It’s loaded with resources.
