To the editor:
I have been following the story of children from outside of the Oldham County school district attending our schools. I have a couple of questions which I feel the taxpayers need to have answered by the superintendent.
1. Of the money which the school system received from the state for the “out-of-district” students attending Oldham County Schools, how much has been returned to the state?
2. In previous articles it was mentioned that several teachers from outside of Oldham County are allowed to let their children attend Oldham County Schools.
At the cost of $7,140 to educate a student in our schools I wonder if this is an extra benefit to those teachers?
3. Do those teachers receive a 1099 for this benefit?
4. Shouldn’t other teachers who do not receive this “benefit” receive similar compensation in the same amount?
5. Why does it cost so much for education in Oldham County? My children attend Catholic school, St. Rita, in Jefferson County and we do not pay this exorbitant amount in tuition and still receive an excellent education.
I believe other taxpayers in Oldham County would like answers to these questions as well.
