Complementary Learning Resource Fees
January 1, 2020
Individual school fees for students will be posted on the PowerSchool Parent Portal early in the school year. As soon as fees are posted, they can be paid online using the portal. Please note, additional fees may be added throughout the year as your child takes part in various activities and/or options (one example may be athletic team fees). Please check the PowerSchool Parent Portal on a regular basis to ensure all applicable fees have been paid.
The fees listed on individual fee schedules are maximum yearly amounts that may be charged and not all are due in advance. Certain fees, such as field trip fees, will be charged on an individual basis as each field trip occurs and not as a lump sum. As well, there are amounts listed on the schedules that may not be incurred by each family based on student enrollments and individual choices.
If you are unable to pay your student fees, you can apply to have certain fees waived. For further information and an application form, please see here or contact your school’s principal.
To reduce time and paper waste, school fees can be paid online. Parents of returning students can pay their children’s fees through their existing PowerSchool Parent Portal account.
New students must first be registered at their school. Once the child is registered, a Parent Portal account will be created. More about new student registration.
