Student Fees

The Board of Education allocates resources to maintain quality schools for the community in part by offering activities, programs, and services for students that extend beyond the State of Illinois’ required minimum level for a free public education.

In order to provide these additional programs and services, the Board has established fees to be paid by the participant in order to offset the costs of providing such programs and services.

Student Registration Fees

Families are responsible to pay an annual student registration fee of $150 to defray costs for consumable, instructional materials for each child enrolled. Refunds may be issued on a prorated basis if the student is disenrolled. Students may be charged for library fines and other costs incurred as a result of loss, misuse, destruction, or replacement of school property.

School fees noted as “required” are subject to the District’s waiver policy, “optional” fees are not subject to the waiver policy.  Examples of optional fees include calculators, yearbooks, admission to social events, or travel for recreational activities.
