Nonresident Tuition Charges


The parents/guardians of Colorado students who are not residents of this school district shall not be charged tuition. Enrollment of these students shall be decided in accordance with the policy on inter-district choice/open enrollment.


However, the district may enter into a written agreement with any studentís district of residence under which the district of residence agrees to pay tuition to allow the student to attend school within the district as long as the student is not a continuing enrolled student pursuant to policy JFAB.


When a nonresident student with a disability applies to enroll in a school in this district, the district shall provide notice to the studentís district of residence and, if applicable, the studentís administrative unit of residence. The studentís district and, if applicable, administrative unit of residence shall be responsible for paying the tuition charge for educating the student in accordance with state laws and regulations. The amount of the tuition shall be determined pursuant to the rules developed by the Colorado Department of Education.


Out-of-state students who wish to attend school in this district shall be charged tuition in accordance with the rates adopted by the Board.


The superintendent shall present to the Board for its consideration any request from parents/guardians for exceptions to this policy. The Board shall determine whether to consider the request and if it deems consideration appropriate, it shall make a determination on the merits of the request.
