Hooksett seeks more options for its students
“A MOU doesn’t go before the voters (like a tuition agreement), and a MOU can be amended by the two districts without Department of Education approval.
Littlefield said that while it might make sense to pursue an MOU with those districts, he said that for Pinkerton it would be best to have a tuition contract. Littlefield is engaged in negotiations with Pinkerton Academy on a sending contract to replace the contract with the Manchester School District that expires at the end of this year.
“I don’t want our students caught up in politics, because if the board of either district changes, they could potentially alter the MOU or cancel it altogether,” Pearl said.
“We want to make sure we do what’s best for the kids and ensure predicability and stability for the public,” Littlefield said.Pearl and fellow Board member John Lyscars also brought up the status of negotiations with Pinkerton, saying that they would prefer there be no limits on how many students can attend other schools.“The best way to get voter approval on a Pinkerton contract is to have no limits. If we have limitation of numbers, there will be a lot of concerns in the community,” Lyscars said.
