The Jamestown Board of Education has instituted the assessment of a participation fee per co-curricular activity for those activities that are at a cost to the school district. The following procedures are guidelines that will be followed for the purpose of collecting the participation fee:

1. Participation fee for co-curricular activities is $75 per activity for High School level students with a maximum fee of $200 per year per person; and $40 for Middle School students in grades 7-8 with a maximum fee of $100 per year per person; and a maximum fee of $300 per family per year.

A. Participation fees will be reduced based on a family’s free and reduced lunch application form. The following criteria will apply: (1) parents must sign a waiver form releasing their child’s free and reduced lunch information to administration, (2) based on a reduced lunch application, fees will be discounted 30 percent of the participation fee, (3) based on a free lunch application, fees will be discounted 60 percent of the participation fee, and (4) drivers education, activity tickets, activity passes, graduated seniors for summer school, and transportation fees are not a part of the sliding fee scale.

B. Students will be expected to pay the fee one week prior to participation in the first scheduled event.

C. High School level students (9-12) who are participating in fall activities will pay the fee in the Activity Director's office prior to the first game of the sport your student is participating in.

D. Middle School level students (7 & 8) who are participating in fall activities will pay the fee in the Activity Director's office prior to the first game of the sport your student is participating in.

E. Students unable to pay the fee in one installment or prior to the first scheduled event will have to make arrangements with the Activity Director in order to participate in the activity.

2. Based on the following schedule, refunds will be allowed due to illness, injury, transferring to another district or an individual who did not make the team:



A. FULL REFUND will be made if less than half of the activity season is completed.

B. NO REFUND will be made if more than one half of the activity season is completed.
