How do I make a deposit for full-day kindergarten?
When you register your child for Kindergarten, you will receive a paper Tuition Agreement from Chandler School. You are asked to pay a deposit at that time and select a payment plan for the remaining balance. You may complete your payments here, based on the plan you selected on that Agreement. If you have any questions about your payment plan, please contact Sue MacNeil (email@example.com).
Please note that paying online can be done via electronic check, Mastercard, or Discover Card. There is a 25 cent processing fee for using the electronic check option (less than the cost of a stamp), while the fee the bank charges for credit cards is a percentage of the payment being made. Alternatively, you may send a paper check to Chandler, made payable to Duxbury Public Schools.
