Work Study Practices

Work Study Practices

As a complement to New Hampshire's Competency-Based grading initiative, the state launched "Work Study Practices" to promote behavioral qualities or habits of mind that students need to be successful in college, career and life.  The Epping School District has adopted four Work Study Practices and will be reporting out on student progress of these skills.  This report is based on student work in all classes and is determined by student self-reflections and student-teacher conferences.

Students who are self-directed learners, effective communicators, confident collaborators, and innovative thinkers will be more prepared for life beyond the classroom. Competency-based education holds our learners accountable for their academic performance, which is only half of the equation. The students of the 21st century must be ready to apply their knowledge in rapidly evolving workplaces and college classrooms. In order to be fully prepared for life, college and careers, students must also have the skills necessary to be effective in these arenas. Work Study Practices are the essential support to a competency-based system that will equip our students for future success.
