Office of State and Federal Accountability

The Office of State and Federal Accountability develops, implements, and evaluates accountability systems and measures as required by state and federal law. This includes the implementation of the accountability measures in the state ESSA plan, the identification of CSI/TSI/ATSI schools, the state Input-Based Accountability System (IBAS) and the state Performance-Based Accountability System (PBAS). The Office also provides direct technical support and assistance to schools, districts, and policymakers in understanding and interpreting the accountability data.

Revisions to the State ESSA Plan 

On September 29, 2023, the U.S. Department of Education approved New Hampshire's revisions to its State ESSA Plan. See this document for the updated overview of the federal accountability system in New Hampshire. 

Accountability Designations

Please see the reports below for the lists of CSI, TSI and ATSI schools identified in Fall 2022 and Fall 2023.
