Reform Efforts

1. Teacher Leadership Preparation

New Hampshire CEEDAR is now called New Hampshire Educator Effectiveness for Student Success (NHEESS). NHEESS is partnering with the New Hampshire institutions of higher education (IHE) Network and a diverse group of stakeholders across the state to prepare learner-responsive educators and learners and, to develop school leaders who promote and facilitate an inclusive learning environment for all students.

New Hampshire will work to align the state’s professional leadership standards to current research based practices to meet the diverse educational needs of all students to be college and career ready.

New Hampshire will also develop effective partnerships between preparation programs and P-12 schools to demonstrate a positive impact on all students and educator development.

2. Licensure

In December of 2020, the Professional Educator Licensure Standards required for all new initial teacher licenses were revised to include the conceptual framework of most of the High Leverage Practices (reference CEC- Council for Exceptional Children). The Standards were approved by the Professional Standards Board February 5, 2021.

The Professional Administrator Standards are currently under review. The Professional Standards Board has approved revisions to the Administrator Standards and made recommendations to the State Board of Education. The State board will review the recommendations for approval in September, 2022.
