Vocational School Tuition

SECTION 74A.   Section 7C of chapter 74 of the General Laws, is hereby amended by striking out the first paragraph, inserted by section 89 of chapter 139 of the acts of 2012, and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-

Notwithstanding the provisions of section 27C of chapter 29, or any other general or special law to the contrary, a town where a person resides who is admitted to the school of another town under section 7 shall pay a tuition fee to be fixed by the commissioner under the direction of the state board, and in default of payment shall be liable therefor in contract to such other town. If an approved vocational school established by a regional school district or a public independent vocational school accepts a student who resides in a town, other than a member town of said district, which does not maintain such a vocational school, the town in which such student resides shall pay a tuition fee to be fixed by the regional district school committee or by the board of trustees of a public independent vocational school and approved by the commissioner under the direction of the state board; provided, however, that a town shall not be required to pay any portion of the tuition of any student residing therein who is enrolled in a post-secondary vocational program.
