Board votes to accept nonresident students in K-5
DCN Generic school bus
In a split vote, the Dawson County Board of Education approved Policy JBCB during last week’s monthly meeting, allowing nonresidential students in grades K-5 to attend Dawson County schools on a tuition basis. The policy allows the board and future boards to make a yearly decision on whether or not to allow nonresidential students to attend Dawson County schools based on availability as well as set tuition coasts each year. The guidelines, which were also approved during the March 12 meeting, set tuition for the 2018-19 school year at $1,200 ($600 per semester). Before the 2-2 vote, Elaine Wilson spoke in opposition to the policy that was previously brought before the board and did not pass the first time.
