Private Tuition Students and Sending Schools Process:                                                                   
  1. Student/Parent(s)/Guardian(s) meet with the principal to determine if RMS is a good match for the student.
  2. Principal makes a decision on whether to offer a spot. This is based on whether we anticipate having room in the class, and a consideration of other factors that include “fit” with our school and program. Considerations might include past attendance, specific needs, and/or documented behavior incidents at a previous school.
  3. If the Principal approves, a tuition agreement will be drafted by the SAU and sent to either the parent/guardian or sending town.
  4. If the student is a private NH resident, the Assistant to the Superintendent will notify the district in which the student resides in accordance with State law.
  5. Student will complete registration process (see Registration Process)
