Recently, district administration completed an examination of all student fees. The student fee structure also was compared to surrounding districts in the area. The board, using its public committee forums, met about the student fee structure and were mindful of how the fee increases would affect our families. During the March board meeting, the board approved a student fee structure for the next three years, which includes increases from $155 to $225 in 2017-18 and 2018-19, and from $225 to $255 in 2019-20. There will be a discounted rate for those families that pay the fee prior to the first day of school.
During our analysis of the fee structure, D155 was one of the only districts in the area to not charge an athletic fee. Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, the board approved a $50 athletic fee. Additionally, the board also instituted student and family maximums to assist families whose students' participate in multiple sports and/or have multiple student-athletes. The athletic fee will increase by $25 in 2018-19 and again in 2019-20. Individual and family maximums will increase accordingly. Families who qualify and apply for fee waivers will not need to pay registration or athletic fees.
