Fee Reduction Program

Fee Reduction Program

The Wenatchee School District is pleased to offer a fee reduction program for extracurricular activities, including school-based athletic programs and other optional noncredit school clubs/events.  The purpose of this program is to encourage participation and eliminate barriers that may prevent students from involvement in these valuable enrichment activities, especially for students who are low-income.

In 2020 the state legislature passed House Bill 1660 which directs school districts to take steps for creating equitable access to extracurricular opportunities that improve academic, social, and emotional outcomes and addressing barriers to extracurricular activities, such as ASB fees. 

Who qualifies for the fee reduction program?
