THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

SUPREME COURT

 

In Case No. 97-001, Claremont School District & a. v. Governor of NH & a., the court on January 8, 2002, made the following order:

Having considered the memoranda and the oral arguments, the court has decided at this time to invoke its jurisdiction to consider the following questions:

(1) Whether the State’s obligation to provide a constitutionally adequate public education under part II, article 83 of the New Hampshire Constitution requires the State to include standards of accountability in New Hampshire statutes, regulations and/or rules; and if so

(2) Whether existing statutes, regulations and/or rules satisfy this obligation.

At or before 12:00 noon, February 1, 2002, any party may file a supplemental memorandum on these issues.

Brock, C.J., and Broderick, Nadeau, Dalianis, and Duggan, JJ., concurred.
