TUITION REPAYMENT PROGRAM-Policy DHBAA
The Oakes Public Schools desires to employ professional staff dedicated to education and possesses the depth and breadth of knowledge necessary to support education beyond the bachelor’s level, the entry-level for their present position, or to meet the Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA) standards.
The Oakes Public Schools may pay some or all of the costs of tuition, books, fees, and other reasonable expenses as approved by the Board, for any staff member enrolled in an approved education program that leads to the completion of a degree acceptable the Superintendent. The staff member will sign a promissory note agreeing to remain with the Oakes Public Schools during the time it takes to complete the degree and four years afterward. If the employee leaves before completing the degree, s/he will be required to reimburse the school for all expenses paid by the school. Once the degree is completed, the cost of education will be forgiven at a rate of 25% per year.
