DISTRICT-WIDE EVENTS & UPDATES
SY24 Student School Fees
Beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, an instructional supply fee will be issued in addition to annual student fees. The District will use these funds to purchase the needed school supplies for all K-8 grade students. To ensure all students have the supplies they need for a successful school year and to help reduce the burden on families, there will be no supply lists or need to purchase items this summer.
Instructional supply fees for grades K-8 are:
- $50 per full paying student
- $25 per student qualifying for reduced-price meals
- $0 per student qualifying for free meals
Please note that for the past two years the district used pandemic relief funding from the federal government to purchase school supplies for all students; this funding is no longer available.
Guardians will receive a notification this summer with their student’s applicable fees. Applications for free and reduced price meals will be available on the district website in early August. Student fees will be due by the beginning of the school year. Please stay tuned for more information.
