Helping Families Cope with Remote Learning

May 19, 2020 With schools across the country closed, parents are searching for reliable, easy-to-understand resources to support learning at home. Here are a few recommended sites.

The IRIS Center at Vanderbilt University has created a free training module, Parents: Supporting Learning During the COVID-19 Pandemic, that offers practical tools and easy-to-implement strategies.

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.

Transition Lingo

Transition:  the process of assisting youth to move from high school to the adult world.

College and Career Ready: having the skills, knowledge and abilities needed to enroll, persist, and succeed in college and other postsecondary training opportunities, and to gain entry into a meaningful career.

Postsecondary: Elementary school is primary education, high school is secondary education, and after high school is postsecondary education.
