Massachusetts Charter Schools
Final FY05 Charter School Tuition and Reimbursements
During the 2004 - 2005 school year Massachusetts' 48 Commonwealth charter schools served a total of 18,249 pupils. Below you will find several links to final FY05 charter school tuition and reimbursement data. These amounts will be used by the Department of Revenue for the purpose of certifying the June 30, 2005 local aid distribution.
The data provided below reflect the spring enrollment as reported by each charter school via the claim form.
FY05 Charter Tuition and Reimbursement . This page details each district's total full-time equivalent pupils at all charter schools (Column 1); the amount of local tuition, transportation and facilities aid being assessed (Column 5); the amount of direct state subsidy for pupils who were in private or home school settings in FY04 (Column 9); and the amount the Commonwealth is reimbursing each district for the cost of their charter pupils (Column 16).
FY05 Charter Pupils and Tuition . This page details the number of pupils at each charter school and the total dollars to be paid - including the Commonwealth's subsidy for previously private or home-schooled pupils. It was necessary for the Department to cap the enrollment at four charter schools, in accordance with the charter school statute. Although these reductions are minor in their impact, it is pointed out as a reminder that this provision does exist and is enforced.
FY05 Charter School Tuition Rate Calculations. On September 17, 2004, Governor Romney signed into law Chapter 352 of the Acts of 2004. Section 31 of this law amends the charter school statute and creates a new method of calculating tuition for Commonwealth charter schools. In addition, it provides that no charter school will receive less tuition in FY05 than it would have under the old law. With this hold harmless mandate, both rate formulas are being used to determine tuition. This link provides access to both rate formulas.
