STUDENT FEES, FINES, AND CHARGES
The RSU #74 School Board recognizes the need for student fees to fund certain school activities which are not financed by local, state or federal funds.
Student fees, fines, and charges will be established by the RSU #74 School Board. Fines and other charges may be levied as needed to cover the cost of excessive use, physical damage or lost property. The RSU #74 School Board will expect students to be responsible for all school property. Appropriate payment will be expected for any abuse.
Fees, fines, and charges shall be collected in a timely manner. Uncollected charges shall be reported to the Superintendent’s Office after the due date for said charges. A notice will advise pupils and the parent or guardian that fees are to be paid within 30 days of the date they become due.
Any fee or charge due to any school in the system and not paid at the end of the school year will be carried to be debts of the student to the school system and not to a particular school. The administration may decide if a student will be allowed to participate in graduation exercises if fees are not paid.
The RSU #74 School Board recognizes that some students may not be able to pay these fees. No pupil will be denied an education because of his/her inability to pay these charges.
