For 1st Time, Out-Of-District Students
Can Enroll At CCS, Pay $7,500 Tuition
COOPERSTOWN – Citing increased demand in recent years, Cooperstown Central School for the first time will allow students who live outside the school district to enroll and pay tuition.
The change in policy was adopted Wednesday night at the Board of Education’s regular monthly meeting. The policy sets a tuition rate of $7,500 for out-of-district residents. The district has received inquiries about out-of-district enrollment for the past several years and more interest was expressed this spring.
“The district has been purposefully augmenting academic rigor and programming over the past several years,” said Superintendent C.J. Hebert. “We feel that we are in a position to offer these opportunities to interested families and students outside district boundaries.”
Salaries Up 10%, Healthcare Costs Down
In CCS Pacts With Teachers, Food Service
COOPERSTOWN – The Cooperstown Central School District Board of Education approved labor contracts with its teachers and cafeteria workers at its monthly meeting Wednesday. The packages will raise salaries more than 10 percent over the next three years.
However, “the concession to change insurance consortia will result in a savings of roughly $500,000 in year-to-year health cost,” said Cooperstown Superintendent C.J. Hebert.
The new labor contracts with the Faculty Association, which represents teachers, and the Service Unit, which represents food service employees, bus drivers, custodians and other workers, feature a shift from the current CASEBP health plan to the NY 44 Health Trust Benefits Plan.
