Judge denies NH Department of Education request over school district tuition plan

The Associated Press

CROYDON (AP) — A judge has denied the state Department of Education's request to bar the Croydon School Board from using tax money to pay for some students' tuition at private schools.

Judge Brian Tucker ruled Monday that the request does not pass the test of looming "irreparable harm" needed for an immediate injunction. A hearing on the case is scheduled for Jan. 13, 2016.

The complaint asked for preliminary and permanent injunctions against Croydon. Officials gave the board until Sept. 28 to stop using public funds— more than $32,000 —to pay for four students studying this year at the Newport Montessori School.

Croydon's one school goes up through the fourth grade. Parents then have school choice, with most choosing Newport public schools.
