The NH Department of Education supports and encourages local school districts to adopt policies that encourage ‘extended learning’. Extended learning means: the primary acquisition of knowledge and skills through instruction or study outside of the traditional classroom methodology.
….and states the following:
“The local school board is required to adopt and implement written policies and procedures relative to extended learning if the district plans to offer extended learning opportunities, as per Ed 306.27(b)(4) . The local district’s policy may define whether extended learning opportunities are offered in wide variety, in limited options, or not at all. The design of these rules gives School Boards and Districts permission to be flexible and creative in the way schools award credits to students for learning in a variety of settings. Technical Advisory #12 gives further guidance on Extended Learning Opportunities”
