R-II Tuition For Sending Schools Set and Budget Amended

The Chillicothe R-II School District has students that are sent by other districts for classes in Chillicothe.  Those schools pay at tuition per student that is set by the school board.  The tuition rate for the 2019/20 school year was set at $8,526.49 at Tuesday’s meeting.  Superintendent Dr Roger Barnes explains.

Barnes says the increase is about $600, about the same amount of increase as last year.


The Chillicothe R-II School Board amended the 2018/19 budget as part of their meeting Tuesday.  Superintendent Dr Roger Barnes says this is usually done shortly after the start of the school year.

Barnes says this also changes the projected ending balance at the end of the budget year.

Barnes says he continues to budget conservatively and he hopes the reserve balance will look even better at the end of the year.
