The activity fee helps to defray the cost of such things as coach or adviser stipends, supplies, materials, uniform costs, utilities, and facility maintenance. This allows more taxpayer dollars to be allocated for core curriculum subjects.
There are two criteria for determining which activities will require a fee. The first criteria is – is the activity part of a student’s grade? If so, there is no fee. The second criteria is – does the advisor or coach for the activity receive a stipend for running the activity? If the answer is yes, then there is an activity fee. There will be a list posted on the website to identify which activities, based on the above criteria, will require activity fees.
