Policy decisions affect you and your students every day. We’ll keep you informed.

NHASCD follows the work and actions of the New Hampshire Board of Education and the New Hampshire State Legislature.

  • Perhaps the biggest educational policy news of the year is the judge’s decision in the ConVal and Rand cases. While many celebrate the news, the decision will likely be appealed.
  • Check out this article if you want to know more about NH’s state education property tax (SWEPT).
  • Christine Downing, long-time NHASCD member and Director of Curriculum and Instruction in SAUs 32 (Plainfield), 75 (Grantham) and 100 (Cornish), is helping NH educators and citizens understand the 306s.
  • Speaking of the 306s (Minimum Standards), there may be a January presentation at the State Board of Education. No draft will be released at this point.
  • The legislative session is kicking into high gear in Concord. The session begins with LSRs or “Legislative Service Requests.”
  • There are LSR’s on special education funding (LSRs 2062, 2658, and 2623), one to increase base adequacy (LSR 2209), and a reform bill based on the Commission to Study School Funding Report (LSR 2249).
