532 – Student Fees; Fee Waivers

It is the policy of the Board of Directors to keep student fees to a minimum. Students may be charged fees for book rental and other instructional material charges, for damages, fines, and lost materials, for expendable materials for the student’s individual work, for special activities, for admission to school activities, meal tickets, locks, locker and towel fees, for summer school courses, for driver’s education courses, and for other items approved by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors shall approve general student fees. The building principal may approve fees and charges for expendable materials and special activities.

Parents of students meeting specific financial eligibility standards will be eligible for a waiver of student fees or a reduction of student fees based upon the request of the parent or guardian. When an application for a fee waiver is granted, the fees waived are not collectable. The following need not be waived: fines for overdue, lost, or damaged materials, summer school tuition, activity tickets, special activities charges, or fees for expendable materials for individual use if the District provides an alternative material in a course. The Superintendent shall establish a procedure for students unable to pay fees.
