Parents may now have to pay pre-kindergarten tuition for their students in Huntsville City Schools.
The Huntsville City School Board unanimously approved the pre-k tuition plan Monday morning at the board of education meeting.
Superintendent, Christie Finley said some parents will have to pay for tuition while others may not. The tuition cost is based on income.
For those parents who don't qualify for free pre-k, fees range from $40 to as much as $300 a month.
Finley said Huntsville City Schools has financial constraints and charging tuition for pre-k will help. She said the school board believes starting education as early as possible is critical to a student.
According to board members, parents with more than one child in pre-k, will have to pay the tuition for each individual child.
Finley said compared to other private pre-k programs, $300 is less expensive.
