The program is expected to benefit from 250 to 300 IMPACCT students from over 70 high schools across the state.
IMPACCT Academy provides pre-employment transition services to students with disabilities and operates under Inspiring the Mastery of Post-Secondary Achievement in College, Careers and Training (IMPACCT), a partnership of NH Vocational Rehabilitation, Granite State Independent Living and New Hampshire high schools.
IMPACCT Academy initially introduced financial literacy into its curriculum in July 2016, and GSIL staff reached out to St.
"We thought it might be perfect for IMPACCT Academy."
Mary's Bank recently held a supplementary "train the trainer" workshop for 20 IMPACCT instructors.
Immediately after the IMPACCT Commission concluded its work, Governor Ridge directed Lieutenant Governor Mark Schweiker to head a large-scale change process.
Very soon after Ridge assumed office, discussions regarding the creation of the IMPACCT Commission occurred between the Ridge staff and the Republican leaders of the Senate and House.
The Executive Director of the IMPACCT Commission who later moved to the PRIME office noted: "We had seven bills that required legislation, however, a lot of the recommendations and changes that have happened thus far have been internal within the executive branch." In addition, there were several "big areas" that were included within IMPACCT that were never put in front of the legislature.
It is true that Ridge created the Keystone Committee and the IMPACCT Commission as a way to determine many presenting problems across the agencies, but the creation of the PRIME Council in response to this work occurred after-the-fact, and most people outside of Ridge and his cabinet could not make the connection between the work of PRIME and earlier committees or commissions.
