Welcome to Alma,

New Hampshire!

In partnership with NHED, Alma is honored to design and deploy iNHDEX – a future forward approach to state level data management.

iNHDEX powered by Alma streamlines and modernizes the data collection process for all New Hampshire LEAs with real time data collection, validation, certification with an emphasis on clear communication tools and a robust resource library.

Through a calculated rollout with a strong focus on change management, Alma and NHED are working together closely to ensure a seamless transition.

Strength in LEAs partnering with Alma

  • Simplified, automated submissions built into Alma SIS
  • Validation error navigate directly to Alma SIS data fields for quick updates
  • SASID checks with NHED part of SIS
  • School calendar to state calendar integration – no more double entry
  • Preferred pricing and state subsidized implementation cost

Functionality moving to iNHDEX

(and what will remain in i4See)

Data migration plan for LEAs

Broken down by Alma SIS and Non-Alma SIS

2-year migration plan

A strategic pathway to transition all NH LEAs to iNHDEX

Integrated data resolution

As part of the Alma ecosystem, LEAs will benefit with integrated data fixes – directly from iNHDEX to the data field in Alma SIS.

Set up for success

Ahead of this transition, LEAs can set themselves up for the highest degree of success by implementing Alma as their SIS. In choosing to adopt Alma, LEAs will benefit from preferred pricing from the state and a drastically simplified state reporting process, joining numerous New Hampshire districts that have embraced Alma SIS.

Strength in Continued Partnership

Alma’s rapid adoption throughout New Hampshire in the last few years is thanks to an emphasis on a quality user experience and platform flexibility to support a range of educational models. By adopting Alma, LEAs can get their best SIS now and immediately enjoy the benefits of a future-proof, intuitive SIS as the state prepares for a smooth transition to Alma.

Alma is committed to the success of this partnership. Stay connected with us for updates on this important transition!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is iNHDEX?

“iNHDEX” is the name of New Hampshire’s new Statewide Student Information System (“SSIS”). In time, iNHDEX will replace the majority of the functionality currently provided by the State’s “i4see” data collection system.

What does “iNHDEX” stand for?

The acronym “iNHDEX” (pronounced “Index”) stands for “Initiative for New Hampshire’s Data Exchange.”

How is the iNHDEX project being funded?

The iNHDEX data collection system was approved by Governor Chris Sununu and the Executive Council in June, 2022. This project has been largely funded through a competitive State Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) grant that was awarded to NHED in 2020, with the remaining state funds allocated to NHED in the last state biennium budget.

What are the workflow benefits from using the Alma SIS as the district level?

  • Districts using the Alma SIS will realize additional benefits and ease-of-use due to its tighter integration with iNHDEX.
  • Submission to state with a click of a button
  • Fix data once – validation error navigate to SIS to fix
  • SASID checks with NHED part of SIS
  • School calendar to state calendar integration – no more double entry

What are the cost benefits of adopting the Alma SIS as the district level?

Special pricing and state-subsidized implementation will be available to New Hampshire districts interested in adopting the Alma SIS at the district level so that they too can realize the additional benefits and ease-of-use due to its tighter integration with iNHDEX.

Will NHED be able to see the data from Alma districts prior to submission?

No. The Alma district SIS will run independently from the state-hosted iNHDEX system.

Will my district have to use iNHDEX instead of i4see?

Yes, as the functionality of the current i4see system will be reduced over time as iNHDEX is implemented.
