John Rue & Associates has successfully represented parents in disputes over a school district demand for tuition, based on allegations of residency in another district. New Jersey has over six hundred school districts, and most have boundaries drawn by geographic lines. If a student attends a district in which she does not live, school districts can sometimes seek payment of tuition from the family. Especially with special education students, this can create high-stakes litigation for ordinary families.
We are familiar with all aspects of the process of challenging a decision by a school board regarding student residency. If you are concerned about your possible obligation to pay tuition for out-of-district attendance, call for a free initial consultation.
