Minnesota Statutes, section 127A.47, subdivision 5, requires school districts and charter schools to share lists of nonresident students served with the resident districts.
A district educating a pupil who is a resident of another district must notify the district of residence within 60 days of the date the pupil is determined by the district to be a nonresident, but not later than August 1 following the end of the school year in which the pupil is educated.
The local MARSS 03 Non-Resident Report was designed to help districts exchange uniform information.
This procedure does not replace the student acknowledgement for tuition billing that a nonresident district or charter school must provide the resident district for students with an Individual Education Program (IEP). A signed acknowledgement is required to confirm agreements for the education of students with disabilities receiving instruction. The Special Education Student Acknowledgement that schools may use is necessary for the resident district to verify that the student is a resident of their district.
Note: Beginning in FY 2018, if a resident district notifies the department after August 1 with documentation that they have contacted the serving district and have been unable to get a Special Education Student Acknowledgement, the department will permanently block the student from tuition billing. (Blocking the student will result in the unreimbursed cost of providing special education services to not be billed to the resident district through Special Education Tuition Billing.)
