Open Forum:  None

Items for Discussion:


  1. Negotiation of Tuition Rate for Sending Paw Paw High School Students to Indian Creek High School Beginning 2019-2020 School Year.

Chad Willis presented the Paw Paw Board with a handout and began explaining how Indian Creek would like to start at asking for the Per Capita Tuition Charge of about $12,000. Paw Paw Board explained they would like to start at the Instructional Expense per Student at about $7,600. Indian Creek countered with 85% of PCTC and did not want to move from that number. All Special Education would need to be paid for by Paw Paw too. Paw Paw asked if any other services, such as Curriculum Director or Transportation, could be offered to justify paying 85% of PCTC instead of the Instructional Expense per Student.


Action Items: None




Mark Dunklau, seconded by Dawn Foster, made a motion to adjourn the Special Board Meeting of the Paw Paw Community Unit District #271 at 8:50 P.M.

Motion passed unanimously by a vote, 6-0.
