Our Mission

The School District Governance Association of New Hampshire (SDGA NH) has been created as a resource devoted entirely to educating and empowering elected school district officials so they can effectively assert their lawful authority and be responsive to their electorate.

SDGA NH is a forum of experienced elected officials committed to:

  • Educating elected school district officials as to their proper role and responsibilities
  • Promulgating best practices in good governance and prudent budgeting
  • Formulating model school district policies so boards will have an independent, alternative resource
  • Proposing and monitoring legislation that enhances local control in education and openness in administration.

SDGA’s goal is to move the balance of power back to elected representatives for the ultimate benefit of our children’s education.

Voting membership is open to past or present elected officials with fiduciary responsibility over a school district budget. Non-voting membership is also available for those who share our mission.
