Five-year agreement proposed between Londonderry, Hooksett schools
During the Londonderry School Board meeting Tuesday night, Superintendent Nathan Greenberg shared details of the Memorandum of Understanding being proposed between the two school districts.
Upton said he wasn't required to attend this week's public hearing, but opted to do so in the interest of transparency.
According to Greenberg, revenues from the Hooksett tuition students now attending Londonderry High School have already earned $457,000 for Londonderry.
As it stands now, Londonderry doesn't anticipate a need for additional staff to accommodate the Hooksett tuition students.
Should both sides ultimately agree to the proposed Memorandum of Understanding, Londonderry would remain in control of the number of students enrolled each year, meaning that if an unexpected influx of high school students came to town, the Hooksett enrollment numbers would decline.
Once the memorandum agreement expires, Londonderry would have the option of continuing or discontinuing admittance of Hooksett students, though those already attending would be allowed to stay on through graduation.
Rep. Al Baldasaro (R-Londonderry) asked if the town would receive adequacy funds for the Hooksett students.
Baldasaro wondered if the arrangement would be of benefit to local taxpayers.
This year revenues from the Hooksett students would result in a 15 cent per thousand tax decrease for Londonderry homeowners.
In a couple years, if the agreement moves forward, those savings could increase up to $1.45 per thousand.
