Another school year gets underway this week for most students across the Granite State.

Governor Maggie Hassan will greet students at Nashua High School South Tuesday morning.

Later in the day, Hassan will do the same for students at Pleasant Street Elementary School in Laconia.

This year marks a transition for New Hampshire schools to what are referred to as the Common Core State Standards.

This year, schools are expected to align their teaching to the Common Core, a set of learning goals for public school students.

New Hampshire is one of 45 states and the District of Columbia to adopt the standards, which outline what students should know when they finish each grade.
