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 2017-2018 school year:

For your information, the Heath elementary school will close at the end of this school year. The Mohawk Trail Regional School District, on behalf of its member Heath, has approved a tuition arrangement with the Hawlemont Regional School District to accept Heath students at the PK-6 level under a tuition agreement.

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