A Tuition Agreement form is attached for those school districts that find it necessary to purchase educational services for their students from another district or an approved special education agency. Please reproduce the attached form as needed.

The receiving district may enter into a tuition agreement with the resident district or the parents of the child/children involved, in which the resident district or the parents will make tuition payments to the receiving district to compensate for the educational cost of the transferring student.

Please refer to the above mentioned codes for conditions in enrolling a student in grades 9-12 in another district under a tuition agreement, the amount required to pay under these circumstances, and the course of action to take because of failure to pay under these and other circumstances.

A tuition agreement must be approved by each district/agency involved. The receiving district/agency shall keep attendance records on the children attending that district/agency under a tuition agreement. These attendance records shall be reported to the resident district quarterly. The resident district will report to the Department of Education for aid purposes.

After completing a tuition agreement, fax or mail the original to Richard McDowell, Department of Education. After receiving the tuition agreement, the Department of Education, Local Fiscal Services, will mail approved copies to the resident district and receiving district/agency.
