Welcome to SAU 70

Welcome to the website for School Administrative Unit #70, public schools of Hanover NH and Norwich VT. Here you will find information related to our four schools and school boards/committees, and parent information such as school closings, bus routes, school calendars and meals. You will also find contact information for the administrative offices, employee benefits information, job openings, and archives detailing various accomplishments and reports regarding the school district. If you're looking for something in particular, please try the Google Site Search. It will search only within the contents of this website.

SAU 70 Mission Statement


SAU 70 schools are an active learning community that provides broad academic and cocurricular programs. We engage students' minds, hearts and voices so that they become educated, caring and responsible adults. All students are given the opportunity and encouragement to use their:
  • Minds to pursue excellence, academic challenge and personal success.
  • Hearts to respect and care for the emotional and physical well-being of themselves and others, and for the environment.
  • Voices to speak for the common good.
