Student Fees, Fines, and Charges/Return of Property


The District shall charge no fee for any course for which academic credit is awarded.


A student may be charged a reasonable fee for any non-credit course or non-curricular activity such as an extracurricular activity, student activity, or membership in a voluntary club or association. The Board may waive the fee in cases of financial hardship.


Additional fees may be charged for “enhanced programming and materials” which are voluntary enrichments to the curriculum beyond what is necessary to meet the learning expectations for a particular grade or course (i.e. students may wish to use a superior product or consumable than that provided by the school, in which case they may be asked to pay the additional cost of the upgrade). This includes online enrollment when solely a matter of preference.


A student shall be responsible for the cost of replacing materials or property lost or damaged due to negligence. If school property in a student’s possession is lost, broken, or otherwise damaged, the student may be charged the lesser of the fair market value of the item at the time or the cost of repair.


The District may require, as condition of graduation or issuance of a diploma or certificate that all lawful indebtedness incurred by a student be satisfied and/or that all books or other instructional materials, uniforms, athletic equipment, advances on loans or other personal property of the District be returned.
