The New Hampshire Department of Education, Steering Committee, is reviewing and attempting to modify the minimum standards for public school offerings.
The proposed new standards eliminate Family and Consumer Science classes from the required course offerings at all New Hampshire High Schools.
The information can be found on the DOE’s website under the Ed 306 Review of Minimum Standards and can be found at the following link:
Details outlining the removal of Family and Consumer Sciences can be found on pages 17-20.
The Department is reviewing Ed 306, Minimum Standards for Public School Approval because the current rules are due to expire on July 1, 2013.
Please help by doing one or all of the following:
