                                             Student Fees, Fines and Charges**



The Board recognizes the need for student fees to fund certain school activities which are not sufficiently funded by the district.


No student will be denied an education because of his/her inability to pay supplementary fees. 


No student, however, is exempt from charges for lost or damaged books, locks, materials, supplies and equipment.


All student fees and charges, both optional and required, will be listed and described annually in the student/parent handbook, or in some other written form, and distributed to each student.  Students will be advised of the due dates for such fees and charges as well as of possible penalties for failure to pay them.


In accordance with the law and with districtBoard policy, certain education records may be withheld if fees and fines are not paidthe district shall withhold the grade reports, diploma and records of any student or former student who owes $50 or more. Such records may also be withheld for any student or former student who owes less than $50.  Documents withheld will be released upon payment of the debt.


Prior to collection of debts, the superintendent will ensure that notice has been provided as required by ORS 339.260 and 339.270.
