INDIANAPOLIS -- Park Tudor, amid the legal issues of hiring a law firm to investigate allegations against former basketball coach Kyle Cox, has raised its tuition for next year.

The schools says the increase of 3.5 percent is the same increase it has been for the last five years and will not be used to cover any legal fees.

One set of lawyers has already signed on for three years to monitor any future decisions by the school.

In an email to parents, the school's interim headmaster said, "[Legal] costs are entirely separate from any tuition increase, and no additional fees will be passed onto our parent community to cover legal costs."

The bulk of the tuition goes to instructional costs and faculty salaries, according to the email to parents.
