What is the Workforce to Learn Program?
I am very excited to inform you about a grant that RHS recently received. The Career Pathways Partnership Grant, established by the NH Charitable Foundation, will open up more options for students to explore work based experiences. Students will have the chance to participate in a field of interest, learn skills of a trade, and experience a real world learning environment, at no cost to the student. This year we will be collaborating with Palmer and Sicard Inc.

Extended Learning Opportunities (ELOs) are real-world learning experiences that promote personal development, student engagement and provide structure and authentic participation in an area of interest. ELOs are available to all students at Raymond High School.
ELOs can be alternative options towards obtaining academic or elective credit, through semester or full year engagement. ELOs align with state curriculum and core competencies. ELOs are student driven and designed to develop individual interests, experiential skills and career exploration towards postsecondary career decisions.
What is a “good” ELO?
ELO’s have four general components:
1. Research: meet competencies (points you must know to get credit), information can be in any form that provides evidence that you understood something new and can use it in a way new to you.
2. Reflection: keep a journal or blog during the ELO, use the journal to track what you have done and why.
3. Product: putting what you have learned into a form that demonstrates the information you have acquired such as portfolios, presentations, performances, rebuilt engines, job performance reviews from an employer/mentor, etc.
4. Presentation: actively communicate what you have accomplished to those involved in your ELO, show off your product this is your time to shine, explain how your learning met the competencies.Interested in finding out more?Contact Mrs. Londo email@example.com
