The 8tate Superintendent of Schools
Decides That Children Enumerated
in One District Can Be Admitted to
School Superintendent J, K. Now'
lln has received the following decis
Ion which has been handed down by
State Superintendent Ackerman In re
gard to children bolng enumerated In
one district and attending school In
"School boards shall admit free of
charge to schools of their districts
all peisons between the agos of C and
21, whose parents or guardlanH resldo
in such districts at tho time of make-
Ing the appropriation for free ad
romance to such schools, even
though such iiereons may have been
at the last enumeration legally enum
erated In some other district."
The above ruling has been made
because of the universal dlssatisfac
tlon which bus been caused by somo
of the school boards trying to forco
parents to pay tuition for their child
ren whose enumeration was made In
other districts, The law was changed
recently making tho taking of tho
school census In June Instead of
March. In March many people who
live in town and send their children
to the city schools have removed to
tho country to oversea their farm and
are enumerated there When they
come back In the fall the question Is
raised as to whether or not they have
tho right to send their children to tho
city schools without first paying tui
tion as the appropriation has been
iimdo In another district. The above
decision settles tho question.
