Highlights of the policy:

The parent must request enrollment by the application deadline during the summer. 

Approval will be based on available space as determined by the superintendent prior to the new school year.

Slots will be filled based on the date the enrollment application is reviewed.

The Franklin County Board of Education shall establish the non-resident tuition rate. This rate may be adjusted on an annual basis and shall be based on the estimated “local funding cost per student” as calculated by the school system Finance Director. The current rate for 2016-2017 is $600 per semester*.

Tuition shall be decreased by 33% per student for families with more than 2 non-resident students.

One half of the tuition fee shall be due by the first day of the 1st semester and the other half of the annual tuition fee shall be due on the first day of the 2nd semester.

Tuition fees due shall be credited (offset) by amounts equal to payments of real property taxes paid to Franklin County by the parents or legal guardian of the non-resident student.
