The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education

Non-Operating School Districts

Members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education
From:
Mitchell D. Chester, Ed.D., Commissioner

In 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 2011-2012 school year:

As a point of interest, two districts that previously tuitioned students to other area high schools are no longer on this list. The town of Shirley joined with the Town of Ayer to form a K-12 regional school district and the Town of Berkley joined with the Town of Somerset to form a 9-12 regional school district. Both districts became effective in school year 2011-2012.

If you have any questions regarding these approvals, please contact me or Christine Lynch in our School Finance office.
