Beginning in August, parents of new Arab City Schools students who live outside the city limits of Arab will have to pay a fee or tuition. The exceptions are students who live in the school district in Cullman County.
The fee will apply to all new kindergarten through 12th grade students.
At a special meeting Tuesday, the Arab Board of Education adopted the following fee schedule:
• $500 for one child;
• $300 for the second child;
• $200 a year for the third child.
The fee would cap at $1,000 after the third child. The most parents would be required to pay is $1,000, regardless of the number of children (after three) attending.
