What does the “book/registration” fee money really go to in the district? My child never brings home textbooks… 9. January 2015

A: Thank you for your question!  The Registration fee is collected at the beginning of the year from each student to help offset general educational expenses across the district (such as classroom supplies, teacher salaries, benefits, etc.) and is not a fund that goes to anything specific such as textbooks.  The “book/registration” phrase is out-dated, and we have revised our web information.
