General Information about School Fees and Fee Waivers
- Required Fees: these fees are assessed to all students and cover the costs of textbooks, lab supplies, student activities, etc.
- Optional Fees: these fees are charged only to students that participate in certain programs or classes and cover the specific costs associated with those classes.
- Extra-curricular Fees: these are paid if/when your student begins participation in an extra-curricular activity; this includes golf, tennis, basketball, track, wrestling, etc.
Fee Waivers: if you think you may qualify for a fee waiver, you must apply in person at the school. Verification of income is required. Yearbooks are not subject to fee waivers.
- Utah law permits the charging of fees in grades seven through twelve. This means that your student may be charged fees for school materials, supplies, activities and programs.
- If your student is eligible based on income verification or receives SSI payments (qualified child with disabilities), or if you are receiving TANF (Horizon Card - currently qualified for financial assistance or food stamps) or the student was placed in your home by the government as a foster child, the school must waive the fees (meaning that you will not be required to pay the fees).
- If you are having a financial emergency caused by job loss, major illness, or other substantial loss of income beyond your control, your child might be eligible for a fee waiver even if other eligibility criteria are not met. You may apply for fee waivers by submitting the Fee Waiver Application (Grades 7-12).
Please Note: Charges for P.E. clothing, yearbooks, school pictures and other similar items are not fees and can not be waived. Also, if your student loses or damages school property, the costs of replacement or repair are not fees and can not be waived.
