This survey was administered as an online survey between 1/5/07 and 2/28/07. Requests to complete the survey were sent to all district technology coordinators as well as federal technology grant project managers in New Hampshire. A total of 421 out of 475 (89%) school building surveys were received and analyzed to create this report. (NOTE: Seven responses represented sets of two schools combined in the same building.)

 

The New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDOE) relies on this survey data to evaluate the extent to which the state and its schools are effectively implementing technology programs and to inform decisions about future grant funding priorities. For questions about this report, contact Cathy Higgins at the NHDOE Office of Educational Technology at chiggins@ed.state.nh.us or 603-271-2453.

 

The School Tech Survey contains five sections. A companion DISTRICT tech survey was also conducted.

                                                             - Hardware

                                                             - Connectivity and Networks

                                                             - Service & Support

                                                             - ICT Literacy
