New Hampshire Offers Statewide Access to Remote Instructional Resources and Supports

We are highlighting this practice because the use of federal relief funds to ensure schools across the state can access helpful resources is a sound investment. 

The New Hampshire Department of Education invested over $6 million using a combination of state funds from the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund and the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief fund. Together, these funds helped to create a new state-level learning management system in collaboration with the University System of New Hampshire.

The system is designed to help schools, educators and families deploy and make effective use of remote and online instruction. The platform includes best practices around synchronous instruction and professional development that can be deployed immediately. The agency will continue to update the platform with high-quality instructional materials and other evidence-based practices.

Reviewer Analysis

New Leaders

A comprehensive learning management system, that would include professional learning and best practice resources for teachers and leaders, would be a strong support to remote instruction. What resources will the state provide to students or staff who may have connectivity challenges?

The Rural Alliance

We are encouraged with the system design that is being developed for educators, families and schools. We would encourage the system to include best practice and PD for students on how to be an online and/or remote learner.


Having a common LMS in use across the state would be a relief for educators. So many educators have had to rebuild a classroom virtually in the midst of disrupted learning and have done so largely on their own. Having something in place now as a go-to resource can help smooth future interruptions to in-person learning.

Jocelyn Pickford

Investment in a state-supported LMS is a smart way to extend impact to local districts. The state can realize economy of scale by providing technical and high quality content support on one platform

Southern Regional Education Board

Ensuring every school utilizes the same learning management systems addresses concerns of access and equity.

The Bush Center

One time system improvement investments are a strong practice with this kind of funding.

National Parents Union

This investment is important to keeping students and staff safe and also keeping them in the classroom so that students don’t suffer from learning loss.
