Follow The Child

Follow The Child is an initiative to help schools and teachers foster student aspirations to promote student achievement through an emphasis on personalized learning and assessment. Expanding upon the spirit of No Child Left Behind, Follow The Child focuses on measuring growth in the personal, social, physical, and academic facets of each student's life and defining the necessary support systems needed for each student's success. This initiative helps to preserve the individual education of each child as the defining purpose of New Hampshire's educational system.

Follow The Child is not a prescribed set of uniform measures, but rather a vision for child-centered learning that can be met as each school and district best sees fit. This combination of high expectations and flexibility helps to maintain the diverse, local character of education in New Hampshire. Already, several districts and schools have chosen to participate in this exciting initiative. Follow The Child schools and districts make a deep commitment to their students and staff, ensuring that personalized learning and student well-being are at the center of school policies.

No Child Left Behind has made academic proficiency a national conversation. It is essential that New Hampshire captures this urgency and directs it into a whole-child approach that exceeds the national standard. Through the personalization of learning and the measuring of progress in all aspects of a student's life, New Hampshire can provide an education that helps students to increase their aspirations and reach their fullest potential.
