Out-of-county students allowed by School Board
Placeholder Image
Warren County’s borders have been reopened for the first time in years, although coming to the Nursery Capital will have its price.School Board members have voted to allow out-of-county students to attend Warren County schools, but only on a very limited basis.“This would only be if there were siblings already attending here,” said Director of Schools Dr. Jerry Hale of amending the 1998 policy which prevented any out-of-county student from attending schools here. Similar policies are also used in surrounding counties since state law spells out students only have the right to attend schools in the counties in which they reside.However, some issues have been created involving court orders when it comes to parenting plans, for example.“Times have changed since the policy was set,” Dr. Hale said, noting a limited opening of the borders might be appropriate.School Board members determined there would be no free ride for those crossing borders to go to school here. Instead, the board recommended a tuition be attached to any out-of-county student attending Warren County schools.
