Hooksett, Derry's Pinkerton Academy aiming for 10-year deal
Korkosz said the last big issue involves how many Hooksett students would be allowed to attend other high schools. Currently, she said, Pinkerton is stipulating that at least 75 students per class attend Pinkerton for the first four years of the contract, and that for the following six years, 10 percent of each class would be allowed to attend other high schools.“We want a higher number; that 10 percent number is hard for this community,” Korkosz said.
“I didn’t support this meeting, and I don’t think it’s a way to make a 10-year tuition plan, to put the boards in a room at the last minute and try to make a decision,” Pearl said.
“I think it’s possible a last-minute decision is made, and I don’t like those. It all goes back to my central theme — we are at the 12th hour, and I don’t think that is the way to plan for the future,” Pearl said.
Pinkerton spokesman Chip Underhill remained tight-lipped on the meeting, only confirming that the session would take place.
Hooksett School Board members then agreed in a meeting last month to restart talks with the high school.
“In the past year, Pinkerton Academy has toured hundreds of Hooksett parents and students,” Burnham said.
Hooksett would become Pinkerton’s fifth sending town, joining Auburn, Chester, Derry and Hampstead.
