The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education
Non-Operating School Districts
|To:||Members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education|
|From:||Mitchell D. Chester, Ed.D., Commissioner|
|Date:||June 11, 2010|
In June 2009, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education authorized the Commissioner, in accordance with General Laws c. 15, § 1F, paragraph 3, to act on behalf of the Board in approving the annual requests submitted by the superintendents and school committees of towns that do not operate their own schools and seek to tuition their students to public schools in another town, per General Laws c. 71, §§ 1, 4 and 6.
Under this authority, I have approved the following tuition arrangements for the 2010-2011 school year:
|Farmington River Regional|
As a point of interest, this will be the last year that the school committee of Shirley will request approval to tuition secondary students. The towns of Shirley and Ayer voted this past spring to form a K-12 regional school district. The region will be in operation in school year 2011-2012.
If you have any questions regarding these approvals, please contact me or Christine Lynch in our School Finance office.
