    3. Turn in the completed tuition agreement to Sam Cole (K-8) or Lisa Coon (9-12) in the MCPS Business Building located at 915 South Ave W.
    4. Once the agreement is deemed complete, the Business Building will immediately notify the applicable school that the tuition agreement is complete.

    A student who lives outside of the District's boundaries and who has been suspended or expelled from another school district is not allowed to enroll in an MCPS school while still under the suspension or expulsion.
