Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Participation Fee
The Board of Education will continue to assess an Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Participation Fee for the 2023-2024 school year. The annual fee will be assessed to every student who participates in at least one athletic or extracurricular activity that requires a Board of Education paid coach or advisor.
List of Clubs and Activities that Require Activity Fee
Students who qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program are exempt from paying the Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Participation Fee.
The fee will be assessed once per school year at a rate established by the Board of Education, which for the 2023-24 school year will be the following:
- $200 per student for students participating exclusively in non-sport extracurricular activities (clubs)
- $300 per student for students participating in at least one sport which requires a paid coach and a physical (access to ALL athletics and non-sport extracurricular activities throughout that school year)
- $600 per family cap
The fee is valid for that school year only.
Each student must submit the Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Participation Fee payment prior to the participation (including try outs) in an activity.
The district will collect online payments through School Funds Online at SchoolCashOnline.com. Please only submit payment for up to 2-3 participating students per family depending on the student’s participation. To take advantage of the $600 family cap, please complete the Participation Fee Family Cap Registration Form to register the information for students for which you do not submit payment.
The fee is non-refundable unless the student is cut from the athletic/activity roster and did not participate in any other athletic/extracurricular activities for the remainder of the school year. A refund request form must be completed and submitted by the last day of school or the fee will be forfeited. Forms are available in the high school main office. Refunds will be issued over the summer, after all of the student's obligations have been fulfilled. Any outstanding student obligations will be deducted from the refund at that time. Students who voluntarily drop out of an activity will forfeit their fee. Refund requests must be submitted within the same school year. Refunds for previous school years will not be given.
Payment of the Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Participation Fee does not guarantee position, role, or playing time. It does not guarantee the student or his/her parent, guardian or family control over any conditions, guidelines or policies regarding the team or activities. Individual fees for the year will not exceed the athletic fee regardless of how many non-sport extracurricular activities and/or athletics a student participates in.
