SCHOOL FEE Information
Student Generated Funds (SGF) are fees that families are charged. These fees include noon hour supervision, extracurricular sports fees, jr. high elective fees and activity fees (field trips and co-curricular activities). These fees are to be charged at a rate of cost recovery. We are not allowed to charge more for a fee that what we will actually spend to provide the service.
Current Field trip fee - $40.00 for each K-8 class. Currently we do not hold students back from a trip or experience if fees have not been paid. This may be challenging moving forward and therefore may have to change.
2018 - 2019 - Unpaid Field Trips - 4.7% of fees were not collected.
2018 - 2019 - Unpaid Noon Supervision - 5.6% of fees were not collected.
2018-2019- Unpaid Elective Fees-13.3% of fees were not collected.
2018-2019- Unpaid Extra-curricular Fees- 9.6% of fees were not collected.
Last year’s total of unpaid fees was $4305.77
Any unpaid fees are taken from the school budget. This impacts the operation of the school as this money must come from already allocated funds for such things as textbooks, library books, technology and furniture (student desks and chairs).
For the current school year, the following fees have not been paid:
2019-20 - 25% of field trip fees have not been paid.

2019-20 - 27% of Jr. High Elective fees have not been paid.

Bus fees -For trips taken during school hours we get charged $94.00 for Fort Saskatchewan trips and $241.16 for outside Fort Saskatchewan. After hour trips are substantially more money

Our Noon supervision fee is $84.00 for every class, and $44.00 for Kindergarten and junior high. We currently have 1 noon supervisor for every 2 to 3 classes, and 1 per class in Kindergarten full time.
