School Fees

The Board of Education reviews and approves fees for schools and academies every school year. (Usually in April/May for the following school year.)

The School Act, Section 87(4) permits a Board to charge a deposit for educational resources. Schools may charge deposits for materials given to students and provide refunds upon return, subject to Administrative Procedure #317, "School Fees".

District standardized fees are set in three areas:

Parking Permits at Secondary schools: $16
Graduation Fee (basic cost): up to $40
Student Activity Fee for Middle and Secondary schools: $30 to cover costs of student agendas, guest speakers, student cards, school events, student recognition, student leadership, lock and locker rental.

For students who have graduated but are returning to school to take additional courses ('non-funded'), the fee is (as of Sept.2012) $450.

Refundable deposits will be collected for summer school programs and for graduated adults enrolling in Distance Learning and Continuing Education courses. Refunds in full will be issued once students have qualified for funding. The summer school deposit will be $100 for secondary students and $25 for elementary students. Continuing Education and Distance Learning deposits will be $250.

Academy fees range from $275 to $2,000 per year depending on Academy program expenses. Please contact the school to confirm any fees/Academy fees.
