Libraries for Every School Will Give New Hampshire Families Access to Top Experts
Concord NH, April 13, 2023 — Continuing with its efforts to improve college and career decision-making, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHED) has selected College Guidance Network (CGN) to provide support services to students, families and school counselors to navigate the sometimes difficult and confusing pathway to post-secondary education opportunities. In addition, NHED, working through CGN’s Emmy award winning team, will produce tailored content featuring New Hampshire post-secondary institutions and will launch a New Hampshire live programming channel featuring top state experts in college and career readiness. Through this partnership, students and families and supporting educators at about 180 New Hampshire high schools will gain unlimited access to CGN School – anytime, anywhere, from any internet-connected device. This service will be available to families at all participating New Hampshire schools (public and non-public), as well as home education families.
“This comprehensive content solution can be thought of as a democratization of the post- secondary application process. All students and families will have access to relevant and timely content to help them navigate the post-secondary application. CGN not only facilitates and enhances post-secondary decision-making, but also serves as a tremendous resource for parents hoping to better support their student through a complex and often expensive decision. This partnership also supports our school counselors in their ongoing efforts to assist students who may be overwhelmed or seeking additional post-secondary guidance,” said Frank Edelblut, education commissioner.
Jon Carson, CGN CEO, added, "New Hampshire, with its "first in the nation" ethos, is an excellent state to build a state-wide model for enabling families to better manage this process. Our mix of a video library featuring acclaimed experts, a wide range of content toolkits, live programming, and our flagship feature, Roadmap to College will give New Hampshire schools an important new tool to support their parents and students.
CGN School is a comprehensive online solution with a year-round, live expert speaker series, comprehensive on-demand content that includes decision-making tools, and interactive timelines that map out the post-secondary application process for students and parents. The speaker series features leading national experts in college admissions, career pathways, and financial aid. Content will include New Hampshire specific experts that walk families through the application process and career planning. The goal is to provide families experiencing information overload, a single trusted source so they can access everything in one place.
