Manchester school officials fighting contract battle on two fronts
Both towns have allowed some parents to leave the Manchester district, but the Hooksett School Board has authorized a far greater number to leave. This has prompted the district to file an injunction against Hooksett, accusing it of violating the contract, which calls on the towns to send "all" their students to the district.
Mayor Ted Gatsas said he and Superintendent Thomas Brennan held a recent meeting with a member of the Candia board who told them that the number authorized to leave was "closer to 12," and that half of them were going to private schools, which would not involve the diversion of tuition money.
