N.Y.C. Schools Offer Workers Amnesty on Out-of-City Tuition

The New York City school district is offering a one-month amnesty period for district employees who send their children to its schools, but don’t live in the city and haven’t paid the required tuition.

The announcement last month by Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein followed an investigation that concluded the principal of Brooklyn Technical High School and his wife, a teacher at another high school, lived in New Jersey but had sent their daughter to a New York public school without paying tuition.

In exchange for not being disciplined, the principal retired. But the district’s special commissioner of investigation, Richard J. Condon, has forwarded the findings to law-enforcement authorities.

The amnesty program, which began Feb. 21 and will run to March 21, allows employees who have failed to do so to pay tuition in a confidential manner without fear of disciplinary action.
