General McLane Tuition

 
 

General McLane School District accepts a select number of tuition students each year that do not live in General McLane school district, but would like to attend our schools.

We are currently accepting students for the 2022-2023 school year.

About the GMSD tuition program

The General McLane School District offers a tuition program each year to families that do not live within the district. These students are enrolled just like our regular GMSD students are and are offered all GMSD programs, extra-curricular activities, events and more.

The General McLane School District Board of Education approves the tuition rate each year. The approved tuition for the 2022-2023 year is $4,100 per student.

Tuition parents/families are also responsible for transportation of each student to and from school.

How to apply

There is no formal tuition application. If you are applying for tuition as a first-time student or family, email Sarah Grabski at sarahgrabski@generalmclane.org. 

In that email, please include:

  • a letter of request with your child’s name, grade level, requested school and reason for selecting the tuition option
  • transcripts/grades
  • any IEP information
  • attendance records
  • discipline records

Your application will then be reviewed by the GMSD superintendent, Dr. Matthew Lane. If approved by him, the tuition student will then be approved by the General McLane Board of Education, which meets monthly.

If the application is approved by the Board, you will receive a letter in the mail, accompanied with your tuition contract and invoice, that will share details of how to enroll the tuition student.

Payment Details

The General McLane School District Board of Education approves the tuition rate each year. The approved tuition for the 2022-2023 year is $4,100 per student.
