Activity Fee

Activity fees assist the district with its efforts to continue to provide a robust offering of athletics, fine arts, and other student activities. This fee is charged to students in grade seven through twelve (7-12) participating on any district athletic team or color guard/indoor guard and marching band. Accommodations will be made for students/families experiencing economic hardships as well as for those students who qualify for the Free/Reduced student meal program. A list of activities for which fees will be charged can be found on the Activity Fee chart available as a download on the right.

It is important to note that this is not a participation fee that guarantees any playing time or level of participation; it is a payment required of all students rostered in a sport or activity. Parents should complete the Activity Fee Payment Form (available as a fillable PDF file) and submit it with payment to the High School office at the start of an activity. As the rosters have been finalized and submitted to the administration by coaches and directors, refunds will be made upon request for those students who are cut or not selected for a team. Students who quit activities after rosters/lists are finalized will still be subject to payment of the fee.

The fee structure includes an individual cap as well as a family cap as follows:

  • Individual cap: $200- If a student participates in several activities, no more than $200 in total will be due per individual student for all activities within the current school year.
  • Family cap: $500 - For families with more than one child participating in several activities, no more than $500 in total will be due per family for activities within the current school year.

Any individual who would potentially be unable to participate in an activity as a result of this fee may submit a Request for Waiver of Activity Fee form (available as a fillable PDF file) or contact the High School Athletic Office for additional information.
