NH-RESPONDS seeks to reform and improve pre-service personnel preparation and in-service professional development systems in order to improve the knowledge and skills of general and special education teachers, early intervention personnel, related services personnel, paraprofessionals, and administrators, in designing, delivering, and evaluating scientifically-based practices in the following areas: (1) response to intervention (RtI) to include systems of positive interventions and supports (PBIS), and literacy instruction, and (2) secondary transition supports for students with emotional/behavioral challenges. The project also seeks to improve local school district systems of recruiting, hiring, and retaining education and related services personnel who are highly qualified in these areas.

- NH RESPONDS Grant Performance Report 2007
- The New Hampshire Department of Education was awarded a 2007-2012 State Personnel Development Grant, NH RESPONDS – Professional Development for Excellence in Education. The grant project aims to reform and improve pre-service and in-service personnel preparation systems around designing, delivering and evaluating scientifically-based practices in two areas: (1) response to intervention (RtI) systems of positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) and literacy instruction (LI); and (2) intensive-level secondary transition supports (STS) for students with emotional/behavioral disorders (in participating high schools). The ultimate goal of participation in NH RESPONDS is for schools to have a highly developed integrated 3-tier system of academic and behavior support at the end of the grant period. This report assesses the status of the project after its first year of implementation, and its progress towards fulfilling the goals established to accomplish the grant objectives. The report was submitted by the New Hampshire Department of Education in April 2008.
