Approval or Denial

It takes up to five days to review an application. The Case Manager will not review incomplete applications. You will receive a letter via mail if your child is denied for summer school tuition assistance.

If your child is approved, you will pick up an approval letter from the Gill office. This letter must be taken with you to register your child for summer school at their district. Without the approval letter, the district may charge you for the cost of registering your child. Gill may only cover a portion of the tuition needed. Be prepared to pay your guaridan contribution when you register for summer school.


Gill is not responsible for the expense of any particular service or item unless we have specifically pre-approved payment for that service or item, for a specific date, after agreement with the provider/vendor to a specific discounted amount.
