Non-Operating/Tuition School Districts

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 2014-2015 school year:

For your information, the community of South Field was developed by the South Shore Tri-Town Development Corporation on the former site of the Weymouth Naval Air Station, pursuant to Chapter 301 of the Acts of 1998, as amended by section 37 of Chapter 303 of the Acts of 2008.

Pursuant to the legislation, these students are deemed residents of Weymouth for school attendance purposes and South Field is authorized to enter into an agreement with the Town of Weymouth for the provision of school services.

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