Hooksett, Manchester OK deal on schools to settle claims
“For parents concerned about their 8th graders, in terms of what their high school experience will look like, they will not be obligated to go to Manchester next year,” Graham said.
“We’ve had an agreement with Hooksett for 120 years,” Gatsas said. “We’re going to continue having Hooksett kids attend Manchester (schools). And certainly, it keeps us out of court.”
Saying the agreement will put Hooksett back in control of its own destiny, Graham said there are some things in the agreement for Hooksett to like and some things not to like.
“I’m very optimistic about it,” said Manchester school board member Erika Connors. “I think it’s the best agreement we could come up with for all our students and puts the funds toward the districts both educating their students as opposed to long legal battles.”
