Area school districts stand to lose more than $4.3m in state building aid

Adam Krauss of Foster's Daily Democrat explores how much seacoast school districts stand to lose should the Senate adopt the New Hampshire budget, and the cut in Building Aid, as approved by the House:
Twelve local school districts stand to lose more than $4.3 million combined if the state Senate doesn't restore school building aid after the House passed on it, a new study shows.

The impact has superintendents upset at the possibility, to the point one raised the potential for a lawsuit.

"I'm deeply troubled by what appears to be another reneging on a promise that the state has undertaken with local school districts that goes back many, many years now," said Dover Superintendent John O'Connor. "School districts across the state will be lining up to take the state to court" if the promise isn't fulfilled.
