Student Fees: Textbook Rental / Material / Technology Fees
School District 15 charges a book rental, material, and technology fee to defray costs. If you are new to the district, fees are payable at the time of enrollment. During the summer, annual enrollment, including payment of fees for the coming school year, is conducted by mail. Students who enroll late may pay the fees in the school office when they register. See Student Fees summary document for all fees. See below for more information regarding student fee payment procedures.
District 15 student fees are:
2019-20 School Year
(book/material fees)—$60 per student/year
- Grades 1-6
(book/material/technology fees)—$120 per student/year
- Grades 7-8
(book/material/technology fees)—$135 per student/year
There is a returned check fee of $25 per check. Because all books under this rental plan are the property of the Board of Education, the cost for replacement of lost or damaged books is the responsibility of the student.
Other fees collected from students include any additional PE clothes (the one-time fee of $12 is now included in the annual book/material/technology fee. Students will pay $12 for any additional PE clothes) and graduation gown rental (Grade 8). Other fees are optional. They include interscholastic sports ($85/sport/year or $175 maximum/student/year, nonrefundable), instrument rental (Grades 5-8), and/or regular bus fees for students living less than 1½ miles from school (see Transportation Department below). There is no charge for the activity bus.
