Policy 627 - Student Fees Policy

I. PURPOSE

The purpose of this policy is to provide clear student fee guidelines.

II. GENERAL STATEMENT OF POLICY

The policy of this school district is that student fee procedures are developed and maintained.

III. DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENT FEE PROCEDURE(S)

The Administration shall be responsible for the development and maintenance of a student fee procedure. The procedure shall be operated in compliance with UGG, UFARS, and all other state and federal rules and regulations.

IV. STUDENT FEE PROCEDURE GUIDELINE(S)

It is the policy of the school district to provide that public education shall be free, and no student will be denied an education because of economic inability to furnish educational books and supplies necessary to complete educational requirements necessary for graduation. Where necessary, however, the school district will make certain charges and establish fees in areas considered extracurricular, non curricular or supplementary to the requirement for the successful completion of a class or educational programs.

Each building handbook will address the cost of fees regarding the loss, damage, or other misuse of school property.

V. WAIVER

A. Guidelines and procedures shall be established by the administration to ensure that any fee or deposit that the student or student’s parent is unable to pay is waived.

B. Upon application, fees or deposits may be waived for any student whose parent is serving in, or within the past year has served in, active military service as defined by Minnesota Statutes Section 190.05.
