New Hampshire Moves to Online Teacher Credential System

Peter Biello / NHPR


New Hampshire's education commissioner says a new online system for processing teaching credentials will allow educators to focus more on children instead of pushing paper.

The Department of Education processes about 13,000 credential applications each year, which used to mean getting boxes full of documents that had to be scanned and then mailed back to educators. It recently created an online New Hampshire Educator Information System for teachers, support staff and administrators.

Commissioner Frank Edelblut said such modernization was long overdue. Officials say the changes will save the department thousands of labor hours, plus the cost of paper, postage and other items.
