Through NHED’s partnership with Tutor.com, every middle and high school student across New Hampshire has unlimited access to 24/7, 1-to-1 online tutoring and drop-off review services. The service is free of charge and available for public and private school students, Education Freedom Account students, and homeschool students.

Here’s how it works: Students who attend a public or private school can check to see if their school is signed up to provide access through the school's learning management system or platform (e.g., Canvas, Clever, ClassLink). Students who do not access Tutor.com through a school LMS may create an individual account at any time.

Contact: Copeland Draper, Regional Sales Director: NH, [email protected], https://www.audioenhancement.com

Audio Enhancement was founded over 45 years ago by a mother who refused to accept the status quo for her two deaf sons. Borrowing one of the first wireless mics from the Donny & Marie Show, she created a system for her boys to hear their teachers. Almost immediately, the impact her home-built system was having on all students was clear, and that’s when Audio Enhancement was born. What began as a 4-speaker sound field in the classroom has evolved into a full ecosystem containing classroom audio, classroom video, intercom/bells/paging, and emergency response, used in over 35% all classrooms in US. Copeland is thrilled to support educators here in New England, and contribute to the achievement, communication, and safety initiatives of schools in his home state of New Hampshire!

Contact: Jennifer Murray, Director of District Partnerships, NH, [email protected], https://www.effectiveschoolsolutions.com

Since 2009, Effective School Solutions has been a leader in in-school mental health. We began as private therapeutic day school, an out-of-district placement for students who could not be served in their home district. From that experience, came an idea- why couldn’t the same type of clinical programming be adapted and offered within the four walls of a school building, so that students can be retained in district. From this simple idea ESS was founded. Since that time, ESS has grown from an initial set of two partner districts who are still with us today, to over 100 schools in 60+ districts across six states. In the last 10 years, the ESS approach has become the gold standard for embedded, in-school clinical programming because our multi-tiered approach represents a perfect marriage between the therapeutic and the school environments. ESS is committed to reinventing K-12 mental health care practices in schools. By partnering with districts to help them implement innovative programs that have been proven to improve care, strengthen academics, and maintain students in-district, we believe that every child can reach their greatest potential.

We focus on issues that public school districts have in common; this way, we can produce unique animations, featuring any district’s messaging, branding, and mission, published through a fee-for-license model. This can be significantly less expensive than live video production. Animation is quicker to produce, better represents complex topics, and lasts longer than video.
