At a special meeting held on April 17, 2019, the Mascenic School Board unanimously voted to join the Contoocook Valley, Monadnock Regional and Winchester School District as co-plaintiffs in their lawsuit against the State of New Hampshire. A lawsuit intended to help insure that all NH students have access to a constitutionally adequate education.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Stephen Russell commented that "there is no responsibility more important than ensuring that all of our children receive an adequate education in preparing for their future". He continued, "We also believe that adequate levels of school funding should not be determined through an arbitrary process of "pick and choose" dependent upon the subjective judgement of others. Adequate levels of school funding should be based upon the data compiled annually, by the Department of Education on the actual costs districts incur in providing services to our students".

The inequitable property tax burden that the current method of school funding places on many communities such as Greenville and New Ipswich, needs to be changed. The members of the Mascenic School Board look forward to joining with other school districts in pursuing this important matter.
