If you don't want your kids to suffer with the lack of opportunities in academics and sports in the coming years, do something about it; send you kids to the new district. There is no residency requirement concerning athletes if you enroll before the ninth grade. That's right, your kids could come to the new district and take all the AP and college now classes, compete in athletics, while still living in Herkimer.

That means Cosimo can send his kids. He pushed it now use it. Bruce is a great agent so he can go live in Mohawk or Ilion too. The land of opportunity!

100% BS. Must be a resident of that school district or else you have to pay that district in order to attend/participate in their schools. Education Law dictates this.

total lies- You're wrong. Each school decides
whether or not they will charge nonresident
tuition. Most school districts don't. The school
my children attended has no nonresident tuition,
so students from outside the district can attend
for free. Remember the district attended gets
the state aid for those nonresident students not
the district where they live.

Ah, no, that would be against NYS Education Law. Look it up for yourself.

Ole Timer is correct......there are a couple of schools around here that do not have residency requirements. Unfortunately, the ones people want to go to, do have them, like WCV.

Yet you don't name any of these imaginary school districts with no residency requirements. That is because they must have a residency requirement OR must charge a tuition. That is how the public school system works and how education law regulates that.

Not necessarily

total lies, is a total retard. you don't have to pay anything. children in the area have been switching school districts for years. west canada requires land owned in the district but not residency. reading these threads is like listening to a conversation on the short bus.

Canajoharie charges no nonresident tuition. It is
not an imaginary school district. "Wrong" you are
wrong; I guess that is a good name for you. The only requirement is that you must be a resident
of NYS. P.S. Each school district decides on its
own whether or not to charge tuition.

NYS Education Law Title 4 Teachers and Pupils
Article 65 COMPULSORY EDUCATION AND SCHOOL CENSUS
Part 1 COMPULSORY EDUCATION
Section 3202 Public schools free to resident pupils; tuition from nonresident pupils

That is the section of law governing this. It is too large to be able to post the entire section.

No, that is not the case at all. The requirement is more involved than just a resident of NYS.

the law sez- The section of education law you
referred to has to do with special needs students.
Regular students may attend any school they wish
in NYS. If they are not a resident of that dis-
trict, the district decides whether or not they
want to charge tuition. As I said, Canajoharie,
and many other districts do not charge nonresi-
dent tuition. If you don't believe me, contact
the Canajoharie School district.

wrong again. I just read that section of law and only part of it deals with special needs students, not all of it.

total lies- Call the Canajoharie School and they
will tell you nonresident students may enroll
there and there is no tuition. The same is true
with Fort Plain, St. Johnsville, Little Falls,
and the list goes on and on. P.S. Instead of
stating parts of education laws that you are
not sure of, check with the schools themselves
and you will find out the truth.
