Regulation 3240.2


  1. Tuition Fees - Parish Assessment for Neighboring Parishes of Elementary Schools K-8
  2. Schools K-8 are to notify the parents of students from neighboring parishes that the Parents are to provide a statement from their pastor that verifies they are members of that parish.
  3. Pastors and parish councils are to establish criteria for determining active parish membership.
  4. For families with more than one child in the school K-8, the parish fee could be determined on a per family basis rather than on per student cost. (i.e. Total cost: divided by the number of families minus tuition fees. Parish pays 80% of the remaining amount).
  5. Parishes without schools will have a designated parish school K-8 which their parishioners can attend according to Policy 3240.2. If a parent selects another parish school, the parent will be responsible for the full cost of the child's education. The Office of Education will provide a listing for parishes that are designated as neighboring parishes linked to a specific parish school.
  6. Parishes with schools should have the designated neighboring parishes fully represented on the local parish board of education.
  7. Exceptions to this policy must be granted by the Bishop.
