New Hampshire Twin Law
Senate Bill 78 officially became the NH Twin Law on July 13, 2007. The Queen City Mothers of Twins Club was instrumental in getting this bill passed. We were the fourth state in the country to have a Twin Law. You can get a copy of the final text of this law at www.gencourt.state.nh.us.


NH Twin Bill
RSA 193:3-a Classroom Placement of Twins or Other Multiples

    I. No school board shall adopt a policy of automatically separating or placing together twins or other multiples. In this section, "multiples" means triplets or more.
    II. A parent or guardian of twins or other multiples in elementary school may, no later than 60 days before the first day of each school year or upon registration in the case of children enrolling in a new school, request that the twins or multiples be placed in the same classroom or in separate classrooms. This request shall be granted unless the principal, after meeting with the parents or guardians and after careful consideration of the reasons for their recommendation and of the best interests of their children and other children in the school affected by this decision, decides that a different placement is necessary.
    III. This section is not intended to limit a parent's or guardian's right to appeal.
