Croydon Select Board Answers AG’s Office
At their Tuesday night meeting, the Croydon Select Board said they would continue sending tuition funds to the Croydon School District. The actions go against the demands of a cease and desist letter from the AG’s office, demanding the Select Board to send all monies raised for public education to go to SAU 43 within 20 days. The AG’s office alluded that the Select Board voted to set up an account to pay for private school tuition. In a letter unanimously approved by board members, Dr. Steve Cunningham, James Harding and Tom Howard the Board says the only vote the Select Board took was a change to the address of record for the Croydon School District. The Select Board questioned the legality of sending funds to an entity other then the Croydon School District goes against the duly elected school board and against the voters’ wishes.
Jody Underwood, Chair of the Croydon School Board attended the meeting and said the board did the right thing.
The Croydon School Board’s next meeting in on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 6:30 pm.
