Hill district considering three offers where to send middle, high school students
The Newfound Area School District, the Merrimack Valley School District, and the Franklin School District — where Hill students currently attend school — have all contacted local school officials, each notifying them of its interest in taking on the school’s students, school officials said.
“And Franklin would very much like to continue as the place for Hill students,” said Franklin and Hill School District Superintendent Robert McKenney.
Merrimack Valley would also be a good fit for Hill students, who would have to travel about 20 miles to get to Merrimack Valley schools, said Superintendent Mark MacLean.
Newfound school officials confirmed their district has answered the call from Hill school district officials for notices of interest in the town’s students.
Hill school officials said they have accepted the notices of interest from the other districts and will discuss them at upcoming meetings.
