School Registration Fee Assistance

The Board of Education recognizes that while fees charged students are appropriate and authorized, certain students and their families are not financially able to pay the fees. Students whose families meet the income guidelines for free and reduced-price lunch, the Family Investment Program (FIP), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), transportation assistance under Open Enrollment, or who are in foster care are eligible to have their student fees waived or partially waived.

Students whose families are experiencing a temporary financial difficulty may be eligible for a temporary waiver of student fees. Parents or students who believe they may qualify for temporary financial hardship should contact Kristi Roffman at (563) 382-4208 or This waiver does not carry over from year to year and must be completed annually. The school district will grant full waivers, partial waivers, or temporary waivers depending upon the circumstances and the student or student’s parents’ ability to meet the financial criteria.
