General school registration fees are not increasing for the 2021-22 school year

Jordan School District, in coordination with schools, recommends fees to the Board of Education for authorization in order to run programs and activities for students. The school district sets certain fees in order to maintain a level of consistency and equity across the district. However, other fees can vary depending on school need. These fees are established in accordance with the rules and regulations set forth by the Utah State Legislature and the Utah State Board of Education.

After two open public hearings, the Jordan School District Board of Education unanimously approved the 2021-22 fee schedule on March 23, 2021 at their scheduled Board Meeting.

School principals have been designated as the administrators of the school fees and fee waivers. Consequently, you should direct questions regarding fees or fee waivers to your principal.
