Campbell High School in Litchfield to present successful program at regional conference
LITCHFIELD – Campbell High School was chosen as one of three New Hampshire schools to represent the state this week at a regional education conference for its progress in raising student achievement.
The High School Redesign in Action conference is Thursday and Friday in Norwood, Mass. It will focus on improved teaching and learning in high schools. The conference is sponsored by the New England Secondary School Consortium, which collaborates with education departments from New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island and Vermont.
Campbell was the first high school in New Hampshire to implement a competency-based learning system when it did so in 2001. The curriculum requires that students must demonstrate their acquisition of essential skills and knowledge before they can move on, and the system helped create more diverse learning opportunities for students.
Principal Bob Manseau and a small group of other curriculum coordinators and administrators will present at the conference, outlining Campbell’s competency system.
The Litchfield group will make its presentation Friday at 9:15 a.m.
Great Bay eLearning High School in Exeter and Pittsfield Middle High School were also chosen to present at the conference.
