Jackson School Board approves tuition increase

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Tuition for nonresident students enrolled in the Jackson School District will rise nearly $372 this school year. The Jackson School Board, at a meeting Tuesday, approved the annual increase. Tuition for the 2010-2011 school year is set at $7,125.90, up from $6,753.98 from last school year, an increase of $371.92. The increase is arrived at by dividing expenses from the previous year by the enrollment figure, Wade Bartels, the district's chief financial officer, told the board.

Yes it is, this is for nonresident students. Every school has this. Dont try and make something out of nothing.

Perhaps it wouldn't be necessary to increase tuition if the district would do a little investigating. I know of several children who live outside the district who are going to Jackson Public Schools without paying tuition. Their parents use addresses of relatives living within the district to avoid paying. If a parent feels their own school district isn't up to par, they should be willing to pay the price for their child to attend a different district. Just another example of people mooching off of others. I have no respect for those who do this.

bootheelchic, that happens everywhere, too. There is a young man I am aware of attending cape high school who uses his grandmother's address even though he lives in Jackson with his parents.
