 Administrative Letter #71 Participation Fees - Approved 10/2004; Updated 08/12/2013


DATE:               Reviewed and Updated August 2013 – Richard Holmes 

REGARDING:    Participation Fees              

DEFINITION 

Participation fees for involvement in extracurricular activities cannot be collected until a student has paid all other school fees or a fee waiver has been approved. 

RATIONAL 

  • Students occasionally want to pay their $85.00 participation fee before they have satisfied other financial obligations to the school such as a textbook rental or activity fee, etc.
  • We would remind financial secretaries at the high school level that participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege, not a right. In order to exercise this privilege, a student must first meet all financial obligations associated with their academic program or qualify for a waiver of fees. 

PROCEDURE

Please do not accept participation fees until activity fees, textbooks rental fees and all other fees required for participation in the basic school program have been satisfied. 

GUIDELINES

Follow the Washington County School District Policy 3400 School Fees/Solicitation of Funds (i.e. Student Fee; Activity Fee; Textbook Rental; Lab Fee for Advanced Placement Biology and Chemistry; Science Lab Fee; Individual Life Skills; Career Exploration Project Fee; Visual Art Lab Fee)
