Diverse Learners Tuition Portability Benefit
The Diverse Learners Tuition Portability Benefit (“diverse learners benefit”) is a taxable tuition benefit available to eligible employees who have children enrolled at City Elementary, Hyde Park Day School, or Wolcott College Prep (each, a “Covered School”). The benefit amount is equal to the amount of tuition remission you would have received if your child(ren) attended the Laboratory Schools (not to exceed the tuition rate at the child’s Covered School). In addition to being employed in an eligible position, to be eligible for the diverse learners benefit your primary residence must be located in one of the following nine mid-South Side neighborhoods: Douglas, Grand Boulevard, Greater Grand Crossing, Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, South Shore, Washington Park, and Woodlawn.
