This section includes answers to frequently asked questions related to determining resident district, determining the district fiscally responsible for tuition payment, and calculating tuition. Regular education tuition, other than open enrollment, is based on the district cost per pupil. The district cost per pupil is also called the Maximum Tuition Rate. Those rates are listed here for districts and AEAs.

Open Enrollment Tuition

The amount of open enrollment tuition for the 2013-2014 school year for a regular education student is $6,001, which is the state cost per pupil from the previous fiscal year.  For a student served pursuant to an IEP, open enrollment tuition is calculated as the actual costs of the special education instructional program rather than the prior year's state cost per pupil amount.  Open enrollment tuition is billed and paid on a quarterly basis.  Under special circumstances that terminate or suspend open enrollment status, it is necessary to prorate tuition in a quarter on a per diem basis.
