3.10 - Fees, Fines and Charges - Waiver of Student Fees
Round Lake Area Schools CUSD 116 charges fees for the use of textbooks, consumable materials, extracurricular activities, and other school related items.
All fees are due at the time of registration. Payment plans can be arranged. A late fee will be charged for returning students, if their registration paperwork is not submitted during the established early and regular registration periods each school year.
If a student enrolls in the District anytime during the first semester prior to December 1, they will be required to pay the full registration fee and all related fees. If a student enrolls in the District after December 1, they will be required to pay half of the registration fee. This includes the parking fee for high school students.
Students must pay for any loss of or damage to school-owned property and materials.
In order for no student to be denied educational services or academic credit due to the inability of parents or guardians to pay student fees, the District has instituted a Fee Waiver Process. Students receiving a fee waiver are not exempt from charges for lost and damaged books, lost locks, physical education suits and athletic fees. These fees must be paid in full regardless of the date of enrollment.
Students with an unpaid balance at the time of graduation will have their official transcript held until the debt is paid in full.
Refund of Student Fees
If a student withdraws from the District prior to October 1, they will receive a full refund of the registration fee only (minus $20 administration fee). If a student withdraws from the District after October 1 but prior to the beginning of the second semester, they will receive one half of the registration fee only (minus $20 administration fee). No refund will be provided after the first semester.
Athletic fees will not be refunded after the first game/contest has taken place. Parking fees will not be refunded regardless of the date of withdrawal from the District.
Outstanding Fee Payment
The District will accept checks for the payment of outstanding fees or any other charges due. For a check to be accepted by the District it must include a valid name, current address and at least one telephone number for the party writing the check.
Please be aware that if your check is returned, it may be re-presented electronically. In presenting a check for payment, you authorize service charges and processing fees to be debited from the same account should the check be dishonored. These fees, as permitted by state law, may be debited as a paper draft or an electronic funds transfer, at our option. Each dishonored item is subject to the applicable state returned check fees. The service fee for returned checks is $25.00 or all costs and expenses including reasonable attorney’s fees, whichever is greater.
Overdue or Unpaid Student Fee
The administration will make every attempt to collect past due fees. After several attempts made by the building/district are not successful, a collection agency will be secured to collect past due fees.
Student Accident Insurance
Round Lake School District 116 provides student accident insurance, at no cost, to all Round Lake students.
