Division of Learner Support

Heather Gage
Division Director

The Division of Learner Support consists of the following bureaus/offices.

Educational Technology and Digital Literacy

The New Hampshire EdTech provides leadership and assistance to schools and districts regarding the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Digital Literacy into the teaching and learning process; and also provides leadership, assistance, and guidance in the effective use of virtual, online, blended, and distance learning, along with technology planning, library media services, internet safety, and the federal E-Rate program, based on current trends, research, and funding opportunities. NH Ed Tech also represents the Department of Education as a member of the New Hampshire School Connectivity Initiative (NHSCI).

Integrated Programs

Certain programs serve general populations, while others are designed to serve children, youth, and families with specific educational needs, such as disadvantaged, neglected and delinquent, migrant, homeless, and non-English speaking children.
