NY Court of Appeals addresses responsibility for costs of educating kids living in child care institution
Board of Education of the Garrison Union Free School District v. St. Basil (decided January 5, 2012): The New York Court of Appeals addressed the question of whether a school district is obligated to pay for the educational costs of the children living in a child care institution located within district boundaries. The Court held that a school district is not obligated to provide a tuition-free education to those children residing within the institution and determined to be nonresidents of the school district.
