ROCKFORD - Parkway Local Schools' preschool tuition fees will rise next school year to help cover the program's budget gap.
Treasurer Debra Pierce said at Monday's school board meeting that the program has been operating in the red.
To help make ends meet, board members agreed to increase tuition to $1,620 per year for four days per week and $810 per year for two days per week and charge a $25 one-time registration fee. The changes take effect for the 2017-2018 school year, she said. [More]
