CROYDON, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has asked a judge to bar the Croydon School Board from using tax money to pay for some students’ tuition at private schools.

The complaint asks 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.

Assistant Attorney General Anne Edwards tells The Valley News (https://bit.ly/1NdiN07 ) this is the first time a school board or school district has insisted on going against the Department of Education commissioner’s directive on the matter.

The board says it’s not breaking any laws.
