(Germantown, TN) Cold weather didn’t keep the Germantown school board from deciding some hot-button issues Monday night.
It became the first of the suburban school districts to vote to charge a small tuition for kids who don’t live in the district’s limits.
The fee will be $200, and will mostly affect about a thousand Collierville students who now attend Houston Middle and High schools.
Families can apply for hardship waivers.
The school board also settled on a zoning plan for its schools, separate open enrollment policies for residents and non-residents, and a school calendar that follows Shelby County Schools.
GMSD approves $200 non resident fee. Fisher no
