Technical Assistance to Title I Priority and Focus Schools


The New Hampshire Department of Education has created an ongoing Request ForProposals (RFP) process to identify a cadre of coaches that have demonstrated the ability to turn schools around. The intent of this non-competitive process is to identify entities with a proven history of school turnaround. The vetting process is intended to be a beginning for LEAs, not an end. The recommendation is that LEAs and schools that are interested in hiring a turnaround coach from the vetted list should conduct an in-depth interview and examination of data. These coaches are available to provide technical assistance to schools across the state of New Hampshire who are designated as Title I Priority and Focus Schools regarding:

  • Standards, instruction and assessment;
  • School improvement;
  • Innovation; and
  • School Turnaround Principles
    • Leadership
    • Effective teachers
    • Redesign of school day, week, year
    • Strengthening of instructional programs
    • Use of data to inform instruction
    • Culture and climate
    • Engagement of families and communities

Again, the compilation of this list has not included a competitive process and is only meant to assist schools in their search for a turnaround coach. The review of proposals is based on evidence of meeting the expected criteria in the Technical Assistance to Title I Priority and Focus Schools RFP. Also, this list may be updated from time to time as application are received and reviewed. To obtain a copy of the proposals submitted, please contact Paula Delisi at paula.delisi@doe.nh.gov or (603) 271-6579.
