Negotiated Tuition.
Olley, Edmund W.
Although the details concerning negotiated tuition refer to Catholic schools in Denver (Colorado), the philosophy is applicable to private and church-related schools. The term "negotiated tuition" indicates a method in which tuition rates are set by individual parents and a school official. Assumptions are made that people have a need to give according to their ability, and that people don't lie. Procedures for starting a negotiated tuition plan are offered followed by suggestions for a public relations program, considered essential to the success of a negotiated tuition program. Models of negotiated tuition include a presentation made by a principal of a suburban elementary school in a more affluent area of the city; by a representative from an urban elementary school in a middle class area; and from a low-income inner-city parish with an elementary school. Questions and answers about negotiated tuition, a sample negotiation form, a sample letter to parents, and topics to be covered in a series of inservice training sessions for negotiated tuition are provided. The final section is a summary of schools using negotiated support in the archdiocese of Denver in 1977. (Author/MLF)
