Once approved as a non-resident student, the District will either charge tuition to the parent or enter into an agreement with the student's school district of residence. Please contact the appropriate school directly to inquire about tuition and non-resident student availability.

Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)
ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN ANNUAL NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY
This notice serves to fulfill annual notification requirements in accordance with Section 763.93 of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Act (AHERA). AHERA requires that all school buildings be visually inspected by accredited inspectors to identify all asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM) that may be present in the school, and to maintain records of all activities related to inspections, removal and maintenance of ACBM. As required under AHERA, the Hanover, Dresden, and Norwich Districts must maintain an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) and keep the AMP on file at each school (main offices), and the School Administrative Unit office (SAU). The AMP is available for review during school hours, Monday through Friday.
The AMP details the location of asbestos in each District owned building and provides a record of re-inspections, periodic surveillance, and removal of asbestos.
Please note: Richmond Middle School is asbestos free.
For additional information, please contact our Local Educational Agency Designee, Anthony Daigle, Director of Facilities at (603) 643-3810.
