The Personalized Learning Department (PLP) offers a credit-earning elective course that meets daily. The course provides students with a quiet and structured place to work and offers academic support in all subject areas, in addition to weekly private meetings with their Academic Advisor (teacher of the course). Supervised Study is included in the HHS Program of Studies and students sign up during the course registration process.
Courses offered by the Special Education Department are open to any student who has met the special education eligibility criteria of New Hampshire, as determined by the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) team. Students moving into the Dresden School District with a current IEP from another district may enroll in Learning Strategies until an eligibility determination has been made.
Students that require a 504 Plan have a diagnosed temporary or permanent physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. 504 plans are developed primarily to provide accommodations for a student, while Special Education plans (IEPs) include accommodations, modifications and specially designed instruction and related services. At Hanover High School, 504 plans play an important role in helping students with disabilities access the classroom and the building while helping them become more independent and better self-advocates.

The Title 1 Tutorial program is designed to help new students adjust to the demands of high school by improving their basic academic skills and by supporting/reinforcing classroom instruction. Services are offered to students who qualify based on state-mandated eligibility criteria*. Once enrolled, students meet with a teacher at least two times a week and focus on reading, writing, math, and study skills.
