Class Fees: Certain classes have a class fee assigned to them. These fees are approved by the Madison County School Board. Click here to see the fee list for the 2018-2019 school year. These will be due by September 15th. You can pay on My School Fees or in person with cash or credit card. I would highly suggest that you pay on My Schools Fees. It will generate an email/receipt to you, the bookkeeper, and the teacher of the paid fees. It is really helpful months from now if we have to backtrack and look up if a fee was paid or not. Otherwise, it will be up to the student to keep up with a receipt. It really cuts down on any misunderstandings. My School Fees can be found on our school website under Resources. Here is the link:
