Hooksett resident not happy with ruling by school board
The complaint stems from a confrontation at the conclusion of a November meeting, when Charles Littlefield, Hooksett superintendent of schools, allegedly threatened to physically assault a resident.
Hyde said he filed a police report on Nov. 19, the evening of the alleged confrontation, and then submitted a formal complaint with the SAU 15 School Board, which addressed the issue at its regularly-scheduled meeting Wednesday night.
When board members reemerged and delivered their response, Hyde said he was left unsatisfied.
School Board Chairman Chris Trickett then explained that Littlefield was instructed on his behavior and then referred Hyde to Hooksett School District policy, which instructs Hyde to file future complaints through Littlefield, the subject of the complaint.
“Basically, I’m left with nothing. Until someone decides to speak or until they decide to unseal those minutes, I’m not left with much satisfaction one way or the other,” said Hyde. “I’m willing to take anything they can give me, but they didn’t give me anything.”
“Jason made a complaint to the board and I indicated to the board my recollection of the situation,” said Littlefield. “The board, in non-public session, provided me with directive and I consider the matter closed.
Hyde said he’d be content with a public apology and a handshake, but admitted he hasn’t decided if he’ll continue to pursue the matter.
“It’s always important to reflect and to analyze and to sort of take those things you do well and continue to do them well and also to strive for continuous improvement in other areas he said. “I’ll strive for perfection. I doubt I’ll ever get there, but that won’t stop me from trying.
