DOVER - The city is suing the state over a cap on state aid to growing school districts like Dover's.
They city say the limit on state funds for schools is unconstitutional because it fails to meet the requirement that the state fund an adequate education for each child.
State aid has been capped at 108 percent since 2011, which affects school districts that have seen an increase in students.
Mayor Karen Weston says the city is growing quickly and the cap will cause it to lose nearly $1.5 million in state aid this fiscal year.
"The $1.4 million dollars is very important to our school department, and our students and our tax payers," she said.
Gov. Maggie Hassan says she plans to work with the state Department of Justice on a response, adding that education funding is "an ongoing part of budget discussions."
