A Bold Vision When students with disabilities are provided appropriate instruction and supports, they can learn grade-level general education curriculum, communicate in ways that are commensurate with their same-age peers without disabilities, have meaningful social relationships, and graduate from high school—college and career ready.
Creating Connections NH is a federally-funded project to develop and implement a system of care for youth (ages 12-25) with Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and Co-occurring mental health disorders and SUD (COD). 
RENEW is a structured school-to-career transition planning and individualized wraparound process for youth with emotional and behavioral challenges.
