Vision 2022:
Financial & Facilities Management
Continue to ensure a balanced budget that builds and maintains a fund balance that meets Board policy.
Policy:
Background: During the 1994-1995 school year, the District instituted a basic fee schedule at all school levels that was put into effect as of the 1995-1996 school year. Annually, the administration reviews the fee schedule in preparation of the upcoming school year. A recommendation is then brought to the Board of Education for approval. Over the last ten years, fees have been added for driver education, technology, and TCD; increases have been approved for the driver education, technology, and high school student parking fees; and athletic and performing arts have been incorporated into the registration fee.

In March of 2010, the Board of Education was asked to approve the fee list for high school course consumables. In the past, the Board approved a blanket statement allowing for consumable fees to be assessed at cost. The Board was asked to approve a defined list, as these fees were to be assessed upon student registration for these courses, vs. being collected in the classroom. In addition, the cost of workbooks was added to the list of consumables.

Fee Schedule for 2020-2021.pdf
Summary: For the 2019-2020 school year, there was a $10 increase made to the high school athletic fee and the All-Day Kindergarten program annual tuition was reduced by $400. For the 2020-2021 school year no increase to the registration or technology fees is recommended, and the consumable and workbook fees were assigned based on need, and at cost, respectively.

Attached to the report is the recommended fee schedule for the 2020-2021 school year. It is recommended that the registration fees for the 2020-2021 remain the same as for 2019-2020, and that the District continue to include an early registration incentive for fees paid before July 1, 2020.

The high school course fee list is also included in this report. Proposed consumable fees are based on need; workbook fees are assigned at cost.
