Croydon School District received a small victory on Wednesday regarding their policy on school choice. The NH House approved 208-143, HB 1637, which would allow Croydon and other districts without a school containing a grade for which a student is in, to attend non-religious private schools. The bill clarifies existing law. The bipartisan bill now goes to the senate for approval.
The district has been in a battle with the NH Department of Education over sending five students to the private Newport Montessori School.
The District won a temporary injunction in November when the NH Department of Education asked for the students to be removed from the private school immediately.
Croydon School District is waiting for a decision from Sullivan County’s Superior on whether they will be able to send their students to non-religious public schools next fall.
