The Franklin Regional School District is proud to offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, clubs, and athletic programs that are available to all students in Grade 7 through 12. It is our belief that student participation in these activities provides fundamental components of learning and permits individual growth that extends the classroom experience.
In the past, the school district has been able to provide these activities at no additional cost to the student. Due to a challenging economic climate, we have been faced with many decisions regarding the future funding of these programs. As a result, Policy 4106B – Student Activity Fee Policy – was adopted by the School Board to help maintain the integrity of these valuable programs beginning with the 2011-2012 school year.
The $50 annual fee is now assessed to all students in grades 7-12 who plan to participate in any extracurricular activity, club, or athletic program. This annual fee will permit each student to participate in as many extracurricular activities, clubs, and athletic programs as they would like or so choose. For programs that require competitive processes among students for final selection, payment of this fee only guarantees a student the opportunity to participate in the selection process. In an effort to provide a more successful school experience, we strongly encourage students to participate in as many activities as possible.
The $50 non-refundable payment is due by September 1st. Students will be ineligible to participate in their respective extracurricular activity, club, or athletic programs until the outstanding balance is satisfied.
