Hooksett moves toward deal with Pinkerton on high school students
Anderson said Wednesday that with enrollment at Pinkerton expected to decrease by 500 students in 10 years, overcrowding should not be a concern.
The School Board also reversed course during Tuesday's meeting by voting to explore a multi-school contract in a close 3-2 vote. Along with School Board Vice Chairman David Pearl, John Lyscars and Phil Denbow voted to look into entering multiple contracts with multiple school districts. "I would say that it was reconsidered based upon the prompting of the superintendent, who said that if the Pinkerton contract is finalized and up to 75 students allowed to attend other schools, it would be better to have contracts with other districts stipulating things like how many students they could take and how much tuition will cost," Pearl said.
Korkosz said that the Pembroke, Bow and Londonderry high schools are all candidates for small-scale agreements with Hooksett.
