Fee Waiver Applications
Timing- Fee waiver applications may be submitted anytime from the end of the prior school year up through October 1 of the school year for which the fees are charged. Fee waiver applications submitted after October 1 need not be considered, except that applications for students enrolling after the beginning of the school year should be considered if submitted within 60 days after the student enrolls. The principal may consider a late application for good cause, but this is solely in the principal’s discretion to decide and there is no appeal from the principal’s decision.

Completeness- Fee waiver applications are made using the standard USOE Fee Waiver Application form and by providing the supporting documentation identified on that form. The required supporting documentation must be submitted with the application. If the required supporting documentation is not provided, the parent or guardian shall be notified and the application will be treated as a contingent application if the required supporting document is submitted within 14 days of notice of incompleteness. If the supporting documentation is not submitted within 14 days of notice, the contingent application shall be rejected as deficient and the fee payment requirement shall no longer be suspended.

 Decisions On Fee Waiver Applications
The principal evaluates fee waiver applications and decides whether the application should be granted. The principal shall give the parent or guardian written notice of the principal’s decision on the fee waiver application using the standard USOE Fee Waiver Decision and Appeal Form. Where the application is denied as incomplete for lack of required documentation, the principal shall identify what information is missing and shall also inform the parent or guardian that the application will be considered finally rejected if the documentation is not provided within 14 days.

Treatment of eligible students- Students who have been granted fee waivers shall not be treated differently from other students, nor shall students who have been granted fee waivers be identified to persons who do not need to know of that status.

Community Service Obligation
Upon approval of a fee waiver application, the principal shall use the standard USOE “Community Service Assignment and Notice of Appeal Rights” form to notify the parent or guardian of the community service assignment which the student will need to complete. The types of service required will be community service at the school (such as tutorial assistance to other students or service as an aide outside of school hours), community service in the community, or (when special needs require it) community service done at home.

The Community service requirements given by the principal must be appropriate to the age, physical condition, and maturity of the student, must be conducted in such a way that students are not subjected to embarrassment, ridicule, or humiliation, must avoid excessive burdens on students and families, must give proper consideration to the students educational and transportation needs and other responsibilities, and must not provide a direct benefit to school employees and their families.

The portion of fees relating to textbooks is not included in the fees for which community service is required. Community service credit towards the amount of fees shall be awarded at a per hour rate equal to the current federal adult minimum wage.

Appeal Process
Parent or guardian may appeal the denial of a fee waiver by following the instructions on the State website located at https://www.schools.utah.gov/file/5cdf6f1b-0553-455c-a33b-35d87dc73921. A community service assignment may be appealed following the same process used for appealing a waiver application decision, except that if the parent or guardian wishes to use a prepared form to submit the appeal, the school shall upon request provide a copy of the standard USOE “Appeal of Community Service Assignment Form” for the parent or guardian to use.

Documentation and Record-Keeping
The Superintendent or designee shall keep a copy of the Board-approved fee schedule and fee policies applicable to each school year. Schools shall maintain a copy of all documents relating to fee waiver applications (applications, decisions, community service assignments, written appeals, decisions on appeals). However, schools shall not retain the supporting documentation (for example, tax returns or pay stubs) after a decision has been made on the application.

Certification of Compliance
School Principals, for the principal’s school, and the Superintendent and Board President, for the North Sanpete School District, shall confirm that the fee practices and procedures are in compliance with the assurances contained in the standard Utah State Office of Education certifications of compliance. After a principal has confirmed compliance, the principal shall annually complete and submit the standard USOE certification form applicable to the principal’s school. (“Secondary School Certification of Compliance.”) After the Superintendent and Board President have confirmed compliance, the Superintendent shall annually complete and submit the standard USOE certification form on behalf of the District. (“School District Certification of Compliance.”)

SCHOOL FEES NOTICE
FOR FAMILIES OF STUDENTS IN GRADES SEVEN THROUGH TWELVE
IF YOU NEED HELP IN UNDERSTANDING THIS NOTICE, CALL (435) 462-2485

Utah law permits the charging of fees in grades seven through twelve. This means that your student may be charged fees for school materials, supplies, activities and programs. Except for common household articles and common articles of clothing, your student cannot be required by a teacher or other person to pay fees or provide any materials, money, or any other thing of value unless that requirement has been approved by the local Board of Education and included in the school or district fee schedule. In addition, no teacher, coach, or other person acting as a representative of the school may invite or require your student to participate in any summer camp or other activity unless the costs have been approved by the local Board of Education and placed on the fee schedule.

If your student is eligible based on income verification or receives SSI payments (QUALIFIED CHILD WITH DISABILITIES), or if you are receiving TANF (currently qualified for financial assistance or food stamps) or the student was placed in your home by the government as a foster child, the school must waive the fees (meaning that you will not be required to pay the fees). If you are having a financial emergency caused by job loss, major illness, or other substantial loss of income beyond your control, your child might be eligible for a fee waiver even if other eligibility criteria are not met.

You may apply for fee waivers by submitting the Fee Waiver Application (Grades 7-12). A copy of the application is included with this notice. Additional copies may be obtained from the school office. As soon as you have sent in the completed forms, the fee requirement will be suspended until a final decision has been reached about your student's eligibility for fee waivers. If the application is denied, the school will send you a Decision and Appeal Form. The Form will tell you why the application was denied, and explain how to appeal the decision. The form for starting an appeal is on the same page as the form for the decision. Remember to always keep a copy for yourself. If you appeal a denial of fee waivers, you will not need to pay the fees until the appeal is decided.

If your student is eligible for fee waivers, all fees must be waived, including--but not limited to--the following:

Fees for registration, textbooks, textbook and equipment deposits, school supplies, activity cards, extracurricular activities, and school lockers; lab and shop fees; gym and towel fees; costs for uniforms and accessories; field trips and assembly fees; costs for class or team trips; and costs of musical instruments used in school classes or activities.

There is no such thing as a "non-waivable" or "optional" fee, but alternatives to fee waivers may be arranged in some cases, but not for textbook fees. Alternatives to waivers are not permitted for textbook fees. Alternatives to simply waiving school fees may include such things as a reasonable requirement for community service or an assignment to help on a fundraiser, but may not include installment payments, IOU's, or other delayed payment plans. Community service requirements and fundraisers must be appropriate to the age, physical condition, and maturity of the student, and must be conducted in such a way that students are not subjected to embarrassment, ridicule, or humiliation. In addition, community service requirements and fundraisers must avoid excessive burdens on students and families and give proper consideration to a student's educational and transportation needs and other responsibilities.

Your school will inform you if it will be requiring community service as an alternative to fee waivers.

All students involved in a program for which funds are being raised must be invited to participate in the fundraiser, not just those who are eligible for fee waivers. All participants in the fundraiser should share in the earned benefits. Participation in the fundraiser may be required for those who have requested fee waivers. If a fee-waiver eligible student has already performed a community service requirement covering all of the fees in question, then additional fundraising shall not be required of that student unless all students are subject to the same requirement.

Since people in low-income areas usually have less discretionary income and so may be less able to donate or spend money on fundraisers than those in higher-income areas, quotas should not be used. The question should be whether a student made a good-faith effort, not whether a particular student met a sales quota. If a student makes the requested effort, but sufficient money is not raised in the fundraiser to cover all charges for the school activity and the activity goes forward anyway, then the difference between the fee-waiver eligible student's share of the proceeds and the actual amount of the fee must be waived.

School funds are limited, and your school may need help other than fees. As a result, the school may ask you for tax-deductible donations of school supplies, equipment, or money, but the school cannot require donations. No student may be penalized for not making a donation. For example, if donations are used to pay for a field trip, every student must be allowed to go on the trip even though some may not have made a donation.

Regardless of whether you have paid fees, donations, and contributions or not, or have applied for, received, or been denied waivers, your name is confidential and cannot be disclosed to anyone lacking both a right and a need to know the information. The school may, however, with the consent of the donor, give appropriate recognition to any person or organization making a major donation or contribution to the school.

Charges for class rings, yearbooks, school pictures, letter jackets, and similar items are not fees and need not be waived. Also, if your student loses or damages school property, the costs of replacement or repair are not fees and need not be waived. Students may be required to pay fees for concurrent enrollment or advanced placement courses. The portion of the fees related specifically to college or post-secondary grades or credit is not subject to fee waiver. In addition, only those students who have paid a textbook or equipment deposit are eligible to receive a deposit refund at the end of the year.

The school and school staff cannot withhold, reduce, or enhance grades or credit, or withhold grades, credit, report cards, transcripts, or diplomas to enforce the payment of fees. A school may withhold the official student records of a student responsible for lost or damaged school property consistent with Section 53A-11-806, but may not withhold a student’s records that would prevent a student from attending school or being properly placed in school.

State law requires schools or school districts to require DOCUMENTATION of fee waiver eligibility if parent must “apply for fee waivers.” Local boards will have policies and/or guidelines for determining required documentation for eligibility for fee waivers.

State law requires a school district to provide alternatives in lieu of fee waivers, “to the fullest extent reasonably possible according to individual circumstances of both fee waiver applicant and school,” consistent with local board policies and/or guidelines.

Fee waiver eligibility documentation is NOT required annually but may be required at any time by the school or a parent may ask for review for good cause. Also, documentation SHALL NOT be maintained for privacy reasons. Schools may transfer fee waiver eligibility information to other schools to which students advance or transfer.

NOTE: If your district does not require parents in the entire district area or parents and students in specific schools or sections of the district to “apply for fee waivers,” district administrators NEED NOT require verification of eligibility under this section.
