702.02AP Student Fee Waiver and Reduction Procedures


Administrative Procedures -Student Fee Waiver and Reduction Procedures

The Board recognizes that while certain fees charged students are appropriate and authorized, certain students and their families are not financially able to pay the fees.  The school district will grant either full waivers, partial waivers or temporary waives depending upon the circumstances and the student or student’s parents’ ability to meet the financial criteria.

Full waivers of fees will be granted if the student or student’s parents meet the financial eligibility criteria for free meals under the Child Nutrition program, Family Investment Program, or transportation assistance under open enrollment.  Students in foster care are also eligible for full waives.

Partial waivers of fees will be granted if the student or the student’s parents meet the financial eligibility criteria for reduced price meals offered under the Nutrition program.  The reduction percentage will be 50 percent.

Temporary waivers will be granted in the event the student’s parents are facing financial difficulty.  Temporary waivers may be applied for at any time throughout the school year and will not extend beyond the end of the school year.

The parents or students eligible for a fee waiver must make an application on the district-provided form.  Applications may be made at any time but must be renewed annually.

The school district will treat the application and application process, as any other student record and student confidentiality and access provisions will be followed.

Appeals to denials will be made to the Superintendent or designee.

Fines or charges assessed for damage or loss to school property are not fees and will not be waived.

The district will annually notify parents and students of this waiver.
