Fee Reduction

The Board recognizes that from time to time, there may be a need to review transportation fees for some families due to financial hardship situation.  When payment of transportation fees cannot be made in full or individual payment plan may be necessary,  the parent(s) / guardian(s) or independent student is required to complete the fee reduction application form available at the school.  The completed form along with supporting financial documentation will be reviewed by the School Principal who has the authority to provide a payment plan or to reduce the transportation fee.   Any fee reduction will be charged to the school budget.   Hardship requests must be made annually and must be supported by appropriate financial documentation.
