Manchester school officials cancel meeting with Hooksett peers over breach of contract claim

MANCHESTER - The Manchester Board of School Committee cancelled its scheduled meeting Friday with members of the Hooksett School Board in response to that board's filing of a breach of contract claim.

Manchester superintendent Tom Brennan sent a letter to Hooksett administrators saying the neighboring town&#';s decision to formally file a notice of breach left Manchester no option but to respond formally.

&#';We feel that a conversation at this time would be unproductive and would interfere with the formal process,&#'; Brennan wrote.

Brennan said Manchester intends to address Hooksett&#';s claims after reviewing the matter with the district&#';s legal counsel, then give a written response disputing there is any breach of contract.

Hooksett claims that overcrowding in classrooms qualifies as a breach of contract and wants a release from the arrangement that tuitions Hooksett students to Manchester schools.

Brennan said Manchester would be willing to reschedule a joint meeting if Hooksett withdraws its notice of breach.
