  5. What happens if fees are not paid in the current year?

    You can change the answer to the SES question by contacting the school secretary for help.
  9. My student qualifies for free or reduced-price meals, but I do not see a waiver for my student’s fees.  What is missing?
    You must give permission for the District to use your free or reduced-price meal status information through the enrollment Socio-Economic Status (SES) question on the online enrollment application.  Select Option #1 and answer “all fees” for the District to apply a waiver.
  10. Can I request a fee waiver, reduction or payment plan if my child does not qualify for free or reduced-price meals?
    Yes.  You can provide documentation of public assistance to the school principal/designee or the District accounting office at 663-5362 (Jim Beilke) or 663-5365 (Ruth Schultz).  You can also discuss other special circumstances, fee reductions, or payments plans with the school principal/designee or the accounting office.
