CROYDON, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire judge has ruled against the Croydon School Board in a dispute with state officials over whether the board can use public money to pay private school tuition for four students.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/2aK8NDW ) that a Superior Court judge last week granted the state Department of Education’s request for a permanent injunction barring the practice.

The state’s lawyer says the students can still attend the Newport Montessori School, but paying private school tuition with public funds is a matter for lawmakers to consider.

Croydon officials have said the state gave implied approval by signing off on a plan letting Croydon withdraw from SAU 43 and continue as a separate district.

A board member says the board plans to appeal to the state Supreme Court.
