About the Conference
The New Hampshire Educators’ Summer Summit is an annual event where school teams convene for three days to engage in professional development with national and local experts. Now in its sixth year, the NH Statewide Summer Summit seeks to transform education through community involvement and evidence-based reform practices. Through scholarship and mentorship in effective skills, strategies, and practices to implement with students, the Summit gives local practitioners power to transform education and provides technical assistance for sustainability. School-based teams develop and submit an innovation plan, based on gaps in performance data, as a prerequisite to attendance. Throughout the year, on-site facilitation, tri-annual reviews, and quarterly meetings to build capacity for change support implementation of activities to achieve identified outcomes.
UNH will host over 500 participants as members of New Hampshire school-based teams at the conference. Daily opportunities for keynote presentations, team meetings, and facilitator interaction are vital components of the program. Participants will choose from one of several strands in multiple breakout sessions.
The UNH Education Department is pleased to cosponsor the Summit with the NH Department. of Education. For 100 years, UNH has prepared teachers and educational leaders through research and collaborative partnerships to advance practice.
