Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment

A message from Dr. Steven Nilhas, Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, and Federal Grants Manager 


Welcome to the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment web page. We provide this site to share information with our partners - parents, students, teachers, staff, and the community because we believe transparency and access is important in the education of our students. We use the Mission Statement, Vision Statement, and Values to guide us in the important work of teaching and learning in SAU 36. 


SAU 36 Mission Statement

The White Mountains Regional School District uses our collective resources to educate responsible and ethical citizens who are academically, socially, and physically prepared to meet the needs of our community in an ever-changing world.


SAU 36 Vision Statement

The White Mountains Regional School District will maximize the success of our students, promote the effectiveness of teachers and leadership, and enhance our community partnerships through innovative and diverse educational opportunities and the efficient use of fiscal and physical resources. 


SAU 36 Values Statement - We value: 

● Every child 

● Student success 

● Positive learning environments 

● Financial accountability 

● Professional excellence 

● Family and community partners 

● Respect

We recognize the value of each and every child. We believe that all children can succeed and must be engaged to learn and grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally throughout their lives. A positive learning environment requires excellent facilities, effective safety practices, and a healthy school climate. Financial accountability is managing resources responsibly by balancing the needs of students with what the community can afford. We must recruit, develop, evaluate, and retain high quality personnel. Families and community members are essential partners in guiding student growth and learning. We believe that mutual respect requires fairness, compassion, trust, and attention to the needs of students, parents, staff, and community.
