Students who want to attend Jefferson High School, but who don’t live inside the city limits of Jefferson will have to begin paying tuition next year.
The Jefferson Board of Education approved the tuition last Thursday.
Current JHS students who live out-of-district will be “grandfathered” and won’t have to pay tuition. Students who have a parent working in the Jefferson system will also be exempted. Parents of students who live out-of-district, but who own property in the city, will receive a tax credit.
