PLEASE BE ADVISED:

As you complete the forms and provide the necessary documentation for registration, we want to bring to your attention that residency allows the provision of free school privileges to children of school age in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The requirements of residency (see Registration Checklist) must be met for enrollment.

We want to advise all registrants applying for enrollment that making any willful false statement is a crime and subjects the person making such false statements to penalties of perjury pursuant to the Pennsylvania Crimes of Offenses Code 18 PA stat. Section 4901, et. seq. Also, the District may bring further charges again the individual for theft of services pursuant to 18 PA stat. Section 3926 and 18 PA stat. Section 3922, both of which would be considered felonies, and Fraudulent Practices pursuant to 18 PA stat. Section 4101, et. seq. The individual also becomes liable for the average annual tuition of $9,916.26 for an elementary school student and/or $11,558.61 for a secondary student. Tuition rates fluctuate from year to year.

Sincerely,
Dr. William Keilbaugh
Superintendent of Schools
