An update on the ongoing tuition debate between the Croydon School Board and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office as a hearing scheduled for Wednesday on the merits of the law was postponed until March.
Back in December, Strafford County Superior Court Judge Brian Tucker denied an injunction filed by the state’s board of education to order Croydon to immediately cease funding the tuition of four students attending a nearby private school.
But in his ruling, Tucker acknowledged the decision wasn’t based on the merits of the law, rather, that removing the students from the private Newport Montessori School during the middle of the school year wouldn’t be ideal.
The Croydon School Board has stood firm on its policy of allowing parents to choose their children’s school after the fourth grade. The hearing is now scheduled to take place Wednesday, March 9.
