Dover Files Suit To Recapture Educational Shortfalls

Dover Files Suit To Recapture Educational Shortfalls

There are many questions that come with purchasing a home.  A common question from buyers is “how is the school system?”  Many individuals purchase real estate based on the local school systems.  Schools impact the desirability of towns through out the country and funding is important.  Locally, the Dover school system has been shorted funding from the state of NH because of an arbitrary cap.   This dispute comes from previous shortfall payments by the state.

Below is courtesy of the Dover town offices:
City Manager J. Michael Joyal, Jr. announced Thursday the City is suing the state of New Hampshire to claim more than $14 million in education adequacy funding not provided to the City of Dover over several years. A petition for declaratory judgment was filed in Strafford County Superior Court on Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015. The City is represented by Attorney Andru Volinsky.
