Tuition Rate for 2016-2017 School Year

The Board of Education has set the tuition rate for the 2016-2017 school year.  Out of city Georgia residents will pay $800 per student with a family maximum of $2,400.  The Board strives to keep the tuition rate in line with what a Chickamauga city resident will pay in property taxes for an average home.  Last summer the millage rate was raised to 14.25 mills so that the school system would not lose state equalization funding, but at that point in time the Board opted not to change the tuition rate a month before school started.  This increase will balance the county tuition rate to approximate the increase in property taxes the city residents received last year.  Hopefully, the advance notice of an increase for the upcoming school year will allow families the opportunity to budget their finances accordingly.  Tuition must be paid in full before students are allowed to attend any classes.
