Nonresidents Get a Pass on DCPS Tuition
(Washington Examiner) — Officials didn’t collect up to $648,000 over three years D.C. Public Schools officials have failed to collect at least several hundred thousand dollars in nonresident tuition from students living in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs discovered to be using fraudulent addresses. In the past three years, officials have identified about $648,000 in nonresident tuition fees that had not been paid. But that may be just a fraction of the money owed city schools. While the problem goes unaddressed, parents are questioning whether nonresidents are illegally filling the limited number of coveted slots in programs such as preschool and prekindergarten. City officials also worry that incorrect contact information is a safety issue.
