Student Fee Information

  • District Fee Waiver Application Process

    Fees for the 2022-23 School Year are posted and are viewable as families register for next year. 



    Fees for students who are Directly Certified by the State of Illinois will automatically be waived, per Board Policy 4:140.  Families of students who are directly certified will receive a Direct Certification Notification letter mid/late July.  These students do NOT need to apply for fee waiver. 


    If your student is not directly certified by the State of Illinois but would like to apply for fee waiver can do so by completing the form below and returning it to their oldest student's school.  If your oldest student is in elementary school, please submit your application form after August 1, 2022, to your student's school.  Please know that applications for free or reduced-price meals are separate from fee waiver applications, and each application needs to be completed individually.
