Registration Fee? Every year?

I was just wondering how many other schools do this?? We have to pay a registration fee every school year at the beginning of school. my friends in this area, whose kids attend different districts, have never heard of this. So, anyone else?? Do you pay a fee every year?

  • Yep. We have a $20 per kid,$75 cap per family fee every year for "administrative costs"

  • We don't pay a fee directly, BUT I live in Taxachusetts so I'm sure I pay a fee somehow!

  • Yes. $120/student in grade school. It'll be higher in high school. Same back in Chicago when I was in school. It works that way in a lot of places.

  • There was no fee when my kids went to public school. In fact, the specific school my kids went to provided everything - pencils, paper, all of it. Of course, they also provided a crappy education and had a sh*tty principal, but at least it didn't cost me.
