Hooksett residents hear about Pinkerton plan
Chip Underhill of Pinkerton Academy said that Anderson and other officials attended to answer any questions parents had.
Superintendent Charles Littlefield said that along with being informed that Pinkerton had sent a contract for the district’s consideration after news broke that negotiations had hit a snag, he has heard that Pinkerton would potentially be open to a memorandum of understanding if negotiations on a new contract are not finalized in time.
Board Chairman Trisha Korkosz said that it was a good sign that the Pinkerton officials were in attendance.
Board Vice-chairman David Pearl said he did not understand why Pinkerton officials were there.
“As far as I knew we were done with Pinkerton for next year, originally they were going to be here because the board anticipated having a contract, now I don’t know what they are doing here,” Pearl said.
“We don’t want them to go to Manchester high schools, and we want to find an alternative high school. Manchester is too far, the curriculum doesn’t suit us and the standards have lowered over the years. Central was a great place years ago, but we want better for our kids. This meeting tonight is a step in the right direction. It’s very progressive and it’s nice to see the school board put together all this information,” DeCosta said.
