After winning an initial victory in their lawsuit against the state, ConVal, Winchester, Monadnock and Mascenic school districts are going back to court and seeking close to $3 million to cover transportation costs.
Lawyer Michael Tierney filed a motion to reconsider in Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene on Wednesday asking Judge David Ruoff to award the money.
“Because the state is constitutionally obligated to fund the actual transportation costs of each school district and petitioners’ actual transportation costs are uncontroverted, the court erred by failing to order injunctive relief compelling the state to fund the actual costs of transportation in ConVal, Mascenic, Monadnock, and Winchester for fiscal years 2019 and 2020 and declaratory relief that the failure to fully fund transportation would be unconstitutional,” the motion states.
