The Board of Education on June 22 approved tuition rates for the 2015-16 school year that include a slight increase for students enrolling from counties outside of Charles County, and for non-Maryland residents. For students residing in Maryland but who live outside of Charles County, the cost for the coming school year is $7,445, up about one percent from $7,300 for the 2014-15 school year. Students enrolling in Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) for the 2015-16 school year who live outside of Maryland will be charged $11,740, also an increase of about one percent from the tuition rate of $11,550 for the 2014-15 school year.

CCPS reviews tuition rates annually and the department of student services determines all school transfer requests that include out-of-county and out-of-state student placements. These requests must meet criteria, and schools must have adequate space, including in the particular grade and instructional programs. Additionally, CCPS does not provide transportation to any student who lives out of the county or Maryland. Applications for review are due May 1 annually.

On June 22, The Board also approved a change to some daily and hourly wage rates to reflect the increase in minimum wage. On July 1, the minimum wage rate in Maryland increases from $8 to $8.25. Some job categories in which a CCPS employee would earn minimum wage as a starting rate include a swim instructor or intern. The Board also approved an increase in the pay rate for some hourly employees, such as instructional assistants and food service substitutes. Information about approved pay rate changes is posted on the school system website,
