Student curricular and kindergarten fees will remain the same in 18-19 as the previous year as economic conditions stabilize the district’s revenues.
The only fee to increase for 18-19 is the transportation fee, which will increase by $10 to $315 for the year in the wake of a new contract where costs increased. The fee is only charged to families who don’t qualify for busing under state guidelines.
Two economic forces have improved to stabilize the district’s revenues over the last two years. The Consumer Price Index, which controls property tax revenue increases, is set for 2.1 percent for the second year in a row after three years at or below 1 percent.
Additionally, the rate of return on the district’s investments has increased and is projected to continue increasing during 2018.
The full-day kindergarten enrichment fee is $420. The curricular material fee is $120 for K-5 and $125 for junior high. Other fees, including milk: $12 per year; summer school: $105 per class; Young Explorers, $4,100 per year; and before- and after-school care, are also unchanged.
