Guidelines and Procedures

Partial tuition reimbursement for courses taken through four-year colleges and universities will be granted to certified teachers employed by Wilson County Schools, and to other employees who are enrolled in teacher education programs, subject to the availability of funds and in the following order of priority: 

  1. Courses required to clear a provisional license in the area to which the individual is assigned;
  2. Courses included in a program of study to upgrade the license in the area of current assignment or to add an area of critical need;
  3. Courses at  the  junior-year level  or  higher included in  a  program of  study leading to licensure taken by non-certified employees;
  4. Courses required to add an initial license in administration or supervision.


Submit applications for tuition reimbursement to Organizational Development, located at Central Office by  June  1. Employees  may  submit  applications  throughout  the  school  year  for consideration in May/June.

Attach to the application the following:

  • Documentation of successful completion (copy of grade report or transcript)
  • An official receipt for payment of tuition
    •  Please do not request reimbursement for costs paid by another agency.

Please also note that textbook costs and other fees do not qualify for reimbursement.  Thus, the total amount on your payment receipt is likely not the amount to enter onto the form.

The Organizational Development Office will:

  • Identify funds available for this purpose by May 30;
  • Determine the level(s) of priorities to be addressed;
  • Determine the number of semester hours to be reimbursed, with a maximum of six semester hours per person per year;
  • Calculate the available reimbursement, $70 per semester hour up to a maximum of $420.


All applications for tuition reimbursement are due to the Organizational Development Office, located at Central Office, by the end of the day on June 1. Reimbursements will be mailed by the end of July to your current address on file. The OD Office will process any application received after June 1 during the next processing period. All reimbursements are subject to the availability of funds. The employee must have continual employment with Wilson County Schools in order to receive the reimbursement.
