Students may be enrolled on a temporary non-resident basis, provided the parents and/or legal guardians show evidence of intent to establish a residence within the Carmel Clay School Corporation boundaries within ninety (90) calendar days.
Each temporary non-resident cash tuition student will receive thirty (30) student attendance days without the payment of cash tuition.
The cash tuition fees due will be based upon an estimate of the per capita operating cost as determined by the business department. Refunds and/or additional charges will be made as required after the completion of the current fiscal year. It is understood that tuition charges will continue until the business manager is notified in writing by the applicant that the residency has been assumed.
