Community Relations
Senior Citizens Benefits

The Board of Education recognizes the contribution senior citizens have made to the support of education and wishes to encourage their continued support and participation in school sponsored events.
To this end, the Board of Education establishes the following policy on tuition fees and admissions.

  1. Adult Education
    Any Hamden resident 62 years of age or older will be allowed a minimum of a 25% reduction on tuition fees for enrichment courses offered through the Adult Education Program.
  2. Admission to School Events
    A free season ticket to school events shall be available to Hamden residents who are 62 years of age or over. The senior citizen pass shall be valid only for the person to whom issued and shall entitle the authorized person free admission to most school sponsored activities such as athletic functions and fine arts events. The senior citizen pass will be available at the central administration office.

In order to facilitate the implementation of this policy, the school administrators are to take steps to make the community's senior citizens aware of school events in a timely manner.
