The Monadnock Regional School District Board voted unanimously Tuesday evening to join the ConVal School District’s lawsuit to force the state of New Hampshire to meet its constitutional obligation to provide an adequate education to all New Hampshire children.

Lisa A. Witte, Monadnock Superintendent of Schools, announced the board’s decision in a press release Tuesday night.

“Current proposed legislation and the Governor’s proposed budget for the next biennium do little to provide permanent, guaranteed adequacy. While some communities may see temporary relief, there remains no solution to a longstanding, ongoing problem,” Witte wrote. “The Monadnock Regional School District has taken this vote to join ConVal because it is time for the state of New Hampshire to fulfill its promise to our children and to bring relief to the local taxpayers in the towns of Fitzwilliam, Gilsum, Richmond, Roxbury, Swanzey and Troy.”
