Section 504 of New Hampshire’s Rules for the Education of Children with Disabilities defines accommodations made by schools for students with certain disabilities.
Section 504 is an anti-discrimination statute prohibiting districts from discriminating against qualified students with disabilities on the basis of disability. Public Schools are required to provide students with disabilities a free, appropriate education at public expense (FAPE) 34 C.F.R. § 104.33(a).

At Pinkerton Academy, it may not always be obvious Where a parent or student should go to seek answers and information. Also, a parent or student may not know specifically Who to contact for answers and information in any given area.
To help with communication, Pinkerton Academy has created an illustrated chart to show parents and students how they may address various types of issues related to their student and the school.
Please click here to access the chart. Attendance issue? Curriculum issue? Discipline issue? Athletic issue? Something Else? There are 10 categories of issues on the illustrated chart.

8th Grade Preview Night presentation (January 5 + 6, 2015)
8th Grade Preview Night report: "Freshman Course Level by Standardized Test" -- This report includes a table reflecting five years of data on student success in freshman Math and English courses. The table connects grades on standardized tests (e.g. NECAP, NWEA and GMADE) to the Math or English course level incoming freshmen should take. While Pinkerton does not prevent students from taking a course level outside the specified ranges on the chart, we strongly advise parents to use this information as a guide to place students in course levels.
The following Course Night 2015-2016 schedule is for February 4, 2015. It applies to both families of current Pinkerton Academy students and those of incoming 9th grade students.
Current students have already received course selection materials from teachers.

This service does NOT eliminate the responsibility of students to monitor each day's Announcements -- and especially to take advantage of opportunities described in the Announcements.
Pinkerton Academy provides these Internet Safety Tips from Special Investigator Jennifer Frank of the Plymouth State University Police Department. Officer Frank is a recognized expert in Internet safety; she regularly speaks to students, civic groups and the general public about "The Many Faces of Facebook."
Pinkerton encourages students to practice Internet safety when on line, especially in social media. Pinkerton also encourages parents and older siblings to help young people be safe when on line. The recommendations of Officer Frank can help a great deal.
In English and other classes, you will be asked to use the MLA (Modern Language Association) system for documenting sources. This guide shows how to write citations that follow guidelines set forth in the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, 3rd edition.
