4:142-AP1 Student Fees and Payment Plans

Student registration and participation fees must be approved by the Board.  The Administration may assess course fees based on the cost of consumable materials used in a course.

Payment Plans

Payment plans shall be offered to families who do not qualify for fee waivers.  Payment plans shall be paid on a monthly basis by evenly dividing the outstanding balance by the remaining months of the school year, with the last payment made during the month of April.  Board policy 4:045-AP2, Recovery of Delinquent Debt, shall apply to any accounts that are more than thirty (30) days overdue.  

Credit Card Transaction Fees

To minimize the costs and liabilities related to handling cash and checks, the use of credit cards or electronic checks to pay for school fees is encouraged.  The Superintendent or designee shall have the discretion to assess processing, transaction, or convenience fees for electronic transactions in a fashion that encourages the use of such payment methods while minimizing any related 3rd-party processing costs to the Board.

Proration and Refund of School Fees

Fees shall be assessed in full for students enrolling in an academic period and all subsequent academic periods remaining in the school year.  Academic periods are defined as semesters for Batavia High School and trimesters for all other schools.

Fees shall be refunded in full up to the 10th day of the academic period.  Thereafter, only future academic periods may be refunded proportionately to the total number of academic periods in the school year.

For accounts with a credit balance at the conclusion of a school year, the balance will be credited to next year’s beginning balance.  If the student is disenrolling, the balance shall be credited to a sibling’s account and notice of the credit sent to the parent/guardian via email.  After receiving the credit notice, the parent/guardian may opt for a full refund if the balance exceeds $5.  If the account has a credit balance in excess of $5 and no younger sibling is enrolled, a full refund shall be issued to the parent/guardian.  No refunds will be issued for accounts with a balance of less than $5.
