The Board of Education (Board) recognizes that successful schools rely on services and activities that support or compliment the learning experience of students.

The Department shall determine and assess reasonable fees of public, private, public charter school, and homeschooled students enrolling in Department schools’ activities or services when such participation is allowed by law, rule or policy. Fees shall be approved in accordance with procedures established by the Department or overriding law, rule, or policy. A service fee shall be required for access to services and activities for students not enrolled in Department schools unless prohibited by law, rule, or policy.

The Department and schools are highly encouraged to also apply for grants or any other subsidies to assist in the funding of activities and services. The Department will develop the rules, regulations, and guidelines needed to enable schools to assess fees for services.
