HAMPSTEAD SCHOOL DISTRICT PRESS RELEASE  HMS Chosen to Participate in NH DOE Professional Development Program The Hampstead School District is pleased to announce Hampstead Middle School was selected as one of eight New Hampshire school districts to participate in a multi-year professional development opportunity in Universal Design for Learning through the New Hampshire Department of Education in collaboration with the Center of Applied Special Technology (CAST).   Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based set of principles that guides teachers to anticipate student variability in learning from the start of designing their lessons.  UDL reduces barriers and increases student ownership of learning and engagement.  UDL principles include multiple means of engagement (the WHY), representation (the WHAT), and action & expression (the HOW). These strategies are expected to enhance the teaching and learning at Hampstead Middle School.   "We are thrilled to join together as a learning community to increase strategies that improve student’s access to their learning.  Expanding in various techniques will certainly be beneficial for all students’ personalized learning styles." - Maria Di Nola, HMS Principal “I'd like to thank Karen Gallagher who was instrumental in applying for this grant.  The training of our staff by the Center of Applied Special Technology (CAST) experts will yield positive results in our continued focus on instructional practices.” – Dr. Roxanne Wilson An introductory session for this program was held on June 6, 2018 at the Hampstead Middle School.
