Manchester says Hooksett students can finish up school in the city
As part of the settlement that prematurely terminated Hooksett’s high school sending contract with Manchester, Manchester must take all Hooksett students until 2018, but no longer had any obligation as to which high schools those students would be assigned. Since the agreement was signed, many parents in Hooksett have expressed concern that Manchester could change which school their child attended in the middle of their high school career.
School Board Vice-Chair David Pearl said that Superintendent Charles Littlefield said Manchester doesn’t anticipate any changes in how students are assigned. Under the terms of the settlement, Manchester has sole authority of where Hooksett students are assigned, he said.
“We have received reassurance that Manchester will continue with past practices, and past practice is that they don’t go against what people ask for. So if a kid is a junior now, they should be able to finish their high school career where they started it,” Korkosz said.
“There are numbers out there regarding the financial impact of the settlement but none officially from the board and some members of the board aren’t all that comfortable with what numbers we can share and can’t share, (and the lawyer could have helped with that),”Korkosz said.
