You may have read the News Shield's most recent article regarding the existence and collection of fees in our district, particularly at the high school level. It is important to note that we will have to develop a well thought out plan to determine the feasibility of decreasing or doing away with fees in general. As was stated, the district generates roughly $100,000.00 in revenue for fees ranging from gate receipts for athletic events to various student fees. Because of this, if we do away with the various fees, we will have to determine a way to either replace that lost revenue or make due without it; neither of which are easy tasks. We intend to continue discussions regarding this topic and welcome any input parents or community members may have.
