Meeting the Needs of the Drive to 65 Act with the NH DOE


On February 4th, 2021, Awato’s Matt Guruge hosted a webinar with New Hampshire Department of Education’s Eric Frauwirth, Ed.D. Creating Accessible K-12 Pathways to Credentials gave Matt and Eric a chance to share the story about how Awato and the NH DOE partnered to give each middle and high school student in NH a pathway to a credential.

What is the Career Readiness Drive to 65 Act?

The Career Readiness Drive to 65 Act states that starting in September 2020, school districts shall, for entering high school freshman:

  • Advise all entering high school students how to achieve a career-ready credential upon graduation
  • Document school pathways to career readiness credentials
  • Record on a student’s transcript progress towards the credential
