Hooksett School Board votes to set aside funds for buses
Board chairman Trisha Korkosz said the board expects to receive memorandums of understanding from Londonderry, Bow and Pembroke to allow some students to attend those schools and a sending contract from Pinkerton.
The board also voted to guarantee bus transportation for students who attend high school in Manchester until 2018, which is the last year Manchester has to accept students from Hooksett under the terms of the settlement that prematurely terminated the sending contract set up between the two districts.
“I think the cost of transportation is a necessary expense because we are asking families to attend a different school than what this district has traditionally attended, and for some families (Pinkerton) is not in the footprint of where they drive,” Korkosz said.
Board members John Lyscars and David Pearl voted against adding four buses, with Lyscars saying he voted against it for fiscal and application concerns.
The board also voted to guarantee bus transportation to Manchester through 2018 after Korkosz said the board began hearing transportation concerns from parents who want their children to remain in Manchester high schools.
