Hooksett school board members grapple with district’s future
After Lyscars began to question Korkosz, she then called a five-minute recess.
Once the recess ended, Lyscars once again questioned Korkosz for declaring him out of order, saying, “I did not ask for the floor specifically to apologize.”
Board member David Pearl than said that Korkosz was using her position as chair to be rude to certain board members, and that she has been indiscriminate with how uses her authority as chair.
“Well, I object to being publicly bullied,” Korkosz responded.
Pearl asked for clarification, asking if Korkosz was saying that he was bullying her, which he called “a very serious thing to say in a school setting.”
After tensions subsided, Littlefield gave a presentation to the board and the public in attendance detailing the issues the district will face if its claim of breach of contract is upheld against Manchester.
Littlefield went into detail on how the timeline would work if the breach claim is successful, saying that along with the board, the voters of Hooksett, along with the voters of any town whose board of education agreed to take on Hooksett’s students, would have to approve a warrant article agreeing to the new contract.
Littlefield said that the State Department of Education would also have to approve any new contract, something he said would be no sure thing.
He added that if the breach claim is not upheld, the district would have until 2016 to inform Manchester of any plans to end the contract in 2018.
