Croydon Awaits Decision on Injunction
No decision was given on Monday on an injunction to stop Croydon School District from tuitioning students to Newport Montessori School. Strafford Superior Court Judge Brian Tucker said he will issue his decision on tje temporary injunction by mail. The State argued that the NH Board of Education (BOE) would suffer irreparable damage if the temporary injunction was not issued since the students or parents could sue the state for not getting an adequate education. Judge Tucker questioned why the Board of Education did not ask for an injunction in June instead of after school started. Assistant District Attorney, Ann Edwards stated that BOE Commissioner Virginia Barry did not know that Croydon would continue sending students to the private school in the fall. Croydon’s Attorney Chuck Douglas argued that the Commissioner did know and presented a letter to the court.
There will be another hearing on the merits of the case, but no date has been set.
