Mosaic has a new tiered tuition system! We have instituted this new system in an effort to better serve the entire PS 20 community. In this system families must assess their own tuition tiers.
Families must assess themselves honestly. The program cannot run without adequate financial support from the PS20 community. The money raised by Mosaic pays for Mosaic staff salaries and supplies. It also enables PS20 to employ school aids and to provide additional programming for the whole school.
As you look at the tier guidelines below, ask yourself not what you would like to pay, but what you are able to pay.
Tier 1. Consider this tier ($30) if any of the statements below are true. You:
Own the home in which you live
Have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money
Have access to family money and resources in times of need
Receive full or partial reimbursement for child care from your employer
Tier 2 [CODE: Sp22tier2]. Consider this tier ($20) if none of the Tier 1 statements apply to you, but any of the following statements do. You:
