The Tulpehocken School District is trying to bring students who live in the district back from cyber charter schools to close budget gaps, Dr. Edward Albert, superintendent, told residents at Tuesday night's school board meeting.

"I think we provide a quality education," he said.

There are 48 Tulpehocken students in cyber charter schools, costing the district about $580,000, Albert said.

"If we could get all those kids back we wouldn't raise taxes next year," he said. "We are working diligently to get them back."

The district has its own cyberschool with about a dozen students.

Albert told residents that the district had sent out letters to parents of students in cyber charter schools asking them to return their children to the school district and that he will be going door to door trying to recruit students back into the district.
