6152 - STUDENT FEES AND CHARGES

The School Board may levy certain charges to students to facilitate the availability of adequate and/or appropriate learning materials. Such charges could be made for consumable items, laboratory supplies, lost or damaged books, materials for independent study or special projects, and Corporation-sponsored trips. No student shall be deprived of participation in an activity because of lack of financial ability to pay a charge. A charge shall not exceed the replacement cost of the material used.

When school property, equipment, or supplies are damaged, lost, stolen, or taken by a student, a fee will be assessed. The fee will be reasonable, seeking only to compensate the school for the expense or loss incurred.

All fees collected will be sent to the appropriate Treasurer for deposit in the appropriate fund.

In the event the above course of action does not result in the fee being collected, the Board authorizes the Superintendent to take the student and/or his/her parents to Small Claims Court for collection.
