The school establishes fees and charges to fund certain school activities. Students will not be denied the opportunity to participate in curricular and extracurricular programs of the school district due to the inability of their parent or guardian to pay fees or certain charges. Students whose parent or guardian is unable to afford student fees may receive a fee waiver. A fee waiver applies to all fees related to school, instruction, and extracurricular activities.

Applications for fee waivers may be obtained from the Student Fees homepage on the District website (link is provided above under Resources) and may be submitted by a parent or guardian of a student who has been assessed a fee. A student is eligible for a fee waiver if at least one of the following prerequisites is met:

  • The student currently lives in a household that meets the same income guidelines, with the same limits based on household size, that are used for the federal free meals programs;
  • The student’s parent is a veteran or active-duty military personnel with income at or below 200% of the federal poverty line.
  • The student is homeless, as defined by the Mc-Kinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
