Fee Reduction Program
Wenatchee School District is introducing the Student Fee Reduction Program for extracurricular activities, including school-based athletic programs and other optional noncredit school clubs/events. The purpose of this new 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?
Any Wenatchee School District student whose families qualify for free and reduced meals through the Wenatchee School District. State school officials have adopted income criteria based on family size to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price meals. In addition, all members of the household listed on the Household Free and Reduced Meals Application will qualify for reduced admission prices to their students' school’s extracurricular events.
What fees are waived/reduced?
ASB Cards, Athletic Participation, Club participation, dance tickets, camp costs, event entrance fees, etc. A complete list of eligible fees is available on the student fee reduction program is available here
