Student Fees Policy
Economic Hardship

Parents and guardians experiencing economic hardship may request a reduction or waiver of student fees by completing the steps listed below. The school leader or his/her designee will review each hardship waiver request and make a determination within 10 business days. Parents and guardians who meet the following criteria will be eligible for a reduction or waiver of fees:

  • Make a good faith effort to pay the full fee, including by requesting additional time and/or a payment plan
  • receiving public assistance funds (e.g., Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, and unemployment benefits)
  • providing foster care services
  • experiencing homelessness

The school may ask parents and guardians who do not meet the criteria above to provide additional documentation supporting their requests for a reduction or waiver of student fees.
