In lieu of state funds, Ann Arbor Public Schools will charge almost $15,000 tuition for some non-residents. The school board approved the maximum tuition the state allows for students that missed schools of choice enrollment or aren't eligible.
Board President Deb Mexicotte says it could be a good option for families that move to the area in the middle of a school year. They could pay tuition until the next schools of choice enrollment period for a smoother transition.
Mexicotte says in the past the district has gotten 5 to 10 inquiries a year but haven't had an option for these students.
