Riverside School College Credit Plus Program
We wrote to the Riverside School official asking for the cost of the College Credit Plus program to Lake County taxpayers. Here is the response.
We are currently in the third year of the College Credit Plus program. Students can pretty much attend any college. However, most of our students attend Lakeland. Attached is the final report for FY2017 (second year). The total tuition cost was $271,216.01, which gets deducted directly from our state funding. We also have to pay for the textbooks as well, which we paid $61,110.38 for a total FY2017 cost of $332,326.39.
I also attached the current report for FY2018 (third year). The total tuition currently being deducted from the district is $176,055.96, which will probably go up as I don’t think everything has been report for this year yet. (I have also been disputing the James A. Rhodes State College deduction since this belongs to the other Riverside Schools in Logan County Ohio). We have not been invoiced for any textbooks yet, but expect the cost to be a little higher than FY2017.
For FY2016, I can’t seem to find the final tuition amount paid as our state reports show “post secondary deduction” of $480,170.95, which I believe includes the FY2016 college credit plus program, and a FY2015 deduction for the prior program that no longer exists. This occurred before I came to the district. However, I do see we paid $86,130.00 for College Credit Plus textbooks for that year.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
