Goffstown, Hooksett discuss school deal
Acting Superintendent Brian Balke and Hooksett Superintendent Charles Littlefield met Tuesday to discuss accepting all or some of Hooksett students.
“Their ability to take Hooksett students depended on the outcome of Dunbarton’s vote,” Korkosz said.
The Hooksett School Board recently authorized Littlefield to enter into contract negotiations with Pinkerton Academy in Derry to send most of the district’s students there beginning next September.
“I’m not sure if we will be entering into an agreement with a single district,” he said. “We’re looking at the possibility of an anchor school, which is Pinkerton, and a satellite school with other districts. It’s a plan in progress, and no decisions have been made but I anticipate we will make a decision shortly.”
“Pinkerton can take all our students, but it is quite a distance for some Hooksett students,” Littlefield said.
Hooksett high schoolers have been attending Manchester schools. But last year, Hooksett sent notice to Manchester alleging the city was in breach due to staff cutbacks, crowded classrooms and limited course offerings. The Manchester School District filed suit against Hooksett to enjoin its students from leaving.
