Hillsboro-Deering Elementary School Exits CSI Status!
The New Hampshire Department of Education announced on Thursday, November 10th, that Hillsboro-Deering Elementary School has met the criteria to exit CSI (Comprehensive Support and Improvement) Status. H-DES was first identified as a CSI School in 2018 and due to the pandemic this was the first opportunity for schools to demonstrate improvement and exit the program. Jennifer Crawford, Superintendent of Schools for SAU 34, stated "I am very proud of the excellent work done to get H-DES to this point. The H-DES staff and students put an incredible amount of effort into executing their improvement plan and they remain committed to ensuring that growth and improvement continue."

These changes enable a single view for everyone to see what is happening across the SAU and District.
By clicking on the calendar name on the left-hand panel, you can hide that particular calendar's events from the larger view. You also can subscribe to a calendar to receive updates and changes to events.

- The NH Department of Health and Human Services has an important update for families with children covered by NH Medicaid. During the COVID-19 federal Public Health Emergency (PHE), New Hampshire has provided continuous health care coverage for children and families that receive Medicaid. When the PHE ends, this extended coverage will end too, and families may need to complete a renewal to re-certify their children’s Medicaid eligibility. Learn more about planning for the end of the PHE here.
