The Board must operate within the bounds of state and federal law affecting public education.  If the Board is to meet its responsibilities to the residents and students of the community, it must work vigorously for the passage of new laws designed to advance the cause of good schools and for the repeal or modification of existing laws that impede this cause.  To this end:


1.       The Board will develop a legislative program through conferences with the state and national school boards associations.

2.       When appropriate, the Board will work for the achievement of common legislative objectives through these associations and with other concerned groups.

3.       The Board will also seek both direct and indirect representation of its position on pending with appropriate state and federal legislation and legislative committees.

4.       The Board will designate one of its members to serve as legislative representative with the New Hampshire School Boards Association.
