School Board Updates/Last Day of School

The Gilford School Board met on April 1, 2024 and elected Jessica Jacques School Board Chair, Nicole Hogan Vice Chair, and Lauren Huleatt Secretary.  Bob McLean and Monica Sawyer are the other two Gilford School Board members.  The school board approved several policies at the last meeting.  The policies can be found here.

The school board discussed the end of the school year and has approved a plan to finish the 2023-2024 school year on June 14, 2024.  Based on the New Hampshire Department of Educations requirement for the number of instructional hours in a school year grades 1-6 must offer at least a total of 945 instructional hours and grades 7-11 must offer at least 990 instructional hours.  For kindergarten school districts must offer at least 450 hours of instructional time. Our seniors are allowed to graduate 5 days or 30 instructional hours before the underclassmen.  As of June 14th in Gilford we will have offer 992 hours of instructional time for grades k-6 and 1,036 hours of instructional time for grades 7-11.

If you have not heard, Gilford High School Class of 2024 will graduate on June 7, 2024 at 5:00 pm at The Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.

Other end of year calendar dates will be shared by the schools.  

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Fingerprinting for Volunteers and Chaperones

The Gilford School District welcomes volunteers in our schools.

A fingerprint background check is required in all Gilford schools for individuals, volunteers and chaperones engaged in the following activities:

  • classroom volunteers

  • chaperones on field trips

  • assisting at school activities such as dances, plays and concerts

  • volunteer coach

Once a thorough background investigation and criminal records check is complete with no disqualifying records and the volunteer has completed orientation, the volunteer will be issued an identification badge to be worn every time the volunteer works in the school.  

Fingerprint clinics are scheduled at the SAU office located at 2 Belknap Mountain Road.  A photo ID is required for identification.  

The process takes approximately 30 minutes. A photo will be taken for the ID badge.


Anyone who volunteers in the Gilford School District must complete an annual Volunteer Affidavit and Confidentiality Agreement.  

Volunteers who have already been issued an ID badge and would like a new badge for the 2023-2024 school year need to complete the Volunteer Affidavit and Confidentiality Agreement and submit to the SAU office. Every four years volunteers will need to go through the background investigation and criminal records check at the SAU office.

Volunteer Affidavit

Confidentiality Agreement

The form can be printed, completed and submitted to the SAU.  Forms can be emailed to [email protected]

Gilford School District policies JFABD (Admission of Homeless Students), ACAC (Title IX Sexual Harassment) and JICK (Bullying and Cyberbullying) must be reviewed annually by all volunteers.  Click here to review the policies.
