Longview, TX (KETK) — Pine Tree ISD will begin accepting transfer applications for the upcoming school year on Monday.
In doing so, Pine Tree ISD will be the 9th school in the area to accept transfer students.
Assistant Superintendent James Skeeler says PTISD has been getting requests to have this program for some time now.
Tuition for one transfer student is $500. An additional student will cost $250, with a maximum cost per family of $750.
Skeeler tells KETK, it speaks volumes about the district to have so many interested in the program.
"I think they see that we're moving forward," Skeeler said. "Even with the challenge we've had with the budget from the state we continue to move forward and I think that is very positive."
The application deadline is June 14th.
