Since the superintendent’s arrival in the district, we have worked hard to reduce or eliminate fees that impact our families. In the FY23 budget, the district was able to reduce the transportation fees for students grade 7-12 and eliminate the middle school extracurricular fees.
- The district is able to maintain the reduction of transportation fees for grades 7-12. In FY22, the transportation fee for students in grades 7-12 was $300, reduced in FY23 to $200 per student, and further reduced in FY24 to $100 per student. At this time, the plan for this reduced bus fee remains for FY25, utilizing transportation reserve funds or other one-time revenues.
- The district is able to maintain the elimination of the middle school extracurricular fees (from $125 to $0).
- Last year we eliminated transcript fees for middle and high school students and materials fees for Advanced Placement photography, photography and ceramics at Andover High School.
- No changes/ increases to AHS athletics & performing arts programs
