Pinkerton Academy will be an option for more Hooksett students
The Hooksett School Board voted Tuesday night to approve the one-year agreement with Pinkerton Academy for the 2015-16 school year. The high school, in turn, voted to accept the extension of the current plan.
Hooksett School Board Chairman Joanne McHugh said the board had asked Pinkerton for the extension for next year.
The agreement will allow the two parties an opportunity to continue negotiations on a possible long-term arrangement,” McHugh said.
Pinkerton Academy Headmaster Griffin Morse said the school is looking forward to continuing its relationship with the Hooksett School District.
But the addition of nearly 100 students did mean Pinkerton had to hire four more teachers to keep class size at a reasonable level, Underhill said. He said 100 is the “magic number” at which more teachers need to be hired in the core subjects of math, English, science and social studies.
