Today’s Association for Career and Technical Education Smartbrief included an article discussing competency-based education in New Hampshire. “A school in New Hampshire, where academics support career and technical courses, has adopted a competency-based system in which students work at their own pace. In this commentary, principal Karen Hannigan Machado shares the pros and cons of the approach.”
Four CTE centers in New Hampshire are joining the tiny house movement. Tiny House New Hampshire is a workforce development program designed to encourage students from career technical centers to consider the construction trades industry. Four schools around the state are taking part in the program. The other schools are Huot Technical Center in the Lakes Region, Kennett High School in North Conway and Alvirne High School in Hudson. The houses will compete against each other in March.
