Pinkerton waives minimum enrollment from Hooksett
The Hooksett School Board previously agreed to a 10-year high school sending contract with Pinkerton that would start next year, and just in case voters voted down the contract in March, the board also entered into an enrollment agreement with Pinkerton for only next year. Before the requirement was waived, both the enrollment agreement and contract called for a minimum of 75 incoming freshman to attend Pinkerton next year.
"I have already seen a lot of people happy about it online. Obviously, it takes a lot of pressure off and more importantly it gives us time if the contract passes to have a well thought out plan and let people get used to that plan," Pearl said.
Like Pearl, Korkosz said the reaction from residents has been positive.
"I have no problem admitting I was more skeptical than others that Pinkerton would say yes. I am glad David brought the motion forward to ask Pinkerton and that it worked out the way that it has. It truly shows Pinkerton is about the students, by their actions they are showing they walk the walk," Korkosz said.
According to Korkosz, the contract now calls for a minimum of 75 students per freshmen class to attend Pinkerton during years 2-5 of the 10-year contract sending contract, and then 90 percent of each freshmen class until year eight, followed then by 90 percent of the entire student population of Hooksett for the rest of the deal.
