This session will share how one rural community in New Hampshire spread its wings to create a culture that supports and encourages student voice and choice for all students through Extended Learning Opportunities (ELOs). This presentation will demonstrate how an entire community came together to truly place the student at the center of their own learning experience. A series of vignettes will be used to illustrate the extended learning opportunity experience at Hinsdale School District. The vignettes will include stories from students, implementation challenges from our teachers, collaboration from our business partners, and the evolution of administration and school board support. We will share how our culture shifted from one of a traditional model to one of individualized learning.

Participants will leave with an understanding of the importance of engaging the entire community in the development and support of a student's individualized learning experience.
