Caitlin Davis
Division Director

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

Bureau of Credentialing

Has responsibility for managing and improving the process for certification and recertification of all educators from Superintendents through teacher aides. The Bureau has the responsibility to develop and implement policies and standards for improving the effective pre-service preparation and continued professional growth of educational personnel and leads on coordinating the evaluation process of educator preparation programs and providing technical assistance to institutions of higher education and school districts. The Bureau is also responsible for the investigation of educators involved in acts of misconduct.

Bureau of Accountability and Data Management

Collects and reports on student counts, racial statistics, teacher counts, school building information, and financial data on the school districts in the form of budgets and financial statements. The Bureau provides support for the identification, collection, management, and analysis of all types of educational data to ensure that information is accurate, accessible, and supports department and stakeholder goals.

Bureau of School Safety and Facility Management

Has the responsibility of managing the school approval process for public and nonpublic schools. Additionally, they monitor and provide technical assistance to nonpublic schools, public school administrators, and other state and local agencies. This Bureau provides leadership, technical assistance, and resources to school boards, building committees, school administrators, school business officials, architects, and the general public with regard to planning and financing of school facilities. This Bureau collects, processes, and approves sufficient information on educational specifications, plans, technical specifications, costs, site considerations, and financing methodologies to evaluate proposed school constructions projects in order to determine approval for State Building Aid under RSA 198:15 and to maintain records.

Nonpublic School Approval

This office oversees the implementation of the NH Code of Administrative Rules Chapter Ed 400, Approval of Nonpublic Schools. Additionally we provide technical assistance to nonpublic schools and information to the public regarding nonpublic schools in New Hampshire and related New Hampshire laws (RSAs).

Bureau of Federal Compliance

The Bureau of Federal Compliance oversees activities of federal grant programs to determine whether organizations are in compliance with federal fund related fiscal requirements. The monitoring is completed to ensure that grant recipients spend funds in the manner specified by the grant program. The implementation of 2 CFR 200 (Uniform Grant Guidance) requires that the NHDOE, as a “pass-through” entity, is in compliance with federal risk assessment and monitoring requirements for subrecipients of federal funds.

The Bureau provides technical assistance, guidance documents and other educational opportunities to assist subrecipients in understanding how to manage federal grants.
