Waiver of School Fees: The Board of Education waives all school fees assessed by the district for a student’s required participation in any curricular or extracurricular program, as long as the parent/guardian meets the eligibility. “School fees” are defined in the Board’s policy as “any monetary charge collected by the school or district from a student as a prerequisite for the student’s participation in curricular and/or extracurricular programs of the school or district.”
