2022-23 School Fees Approved

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 maximum fee amounts 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 meetings, the Jordan School District Board of Education unanimously approved the 2022-23 fee schedule on March 29, 2022 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are the participation fees increasing? 

We continue to identify the true costs of running our extra-curricular programs to include; transportation, officials, UHSAA fees, uniforms, program equipment, program essential workers, HUDL (video/film exchange tools), etc.

To be compliant with USBE Administrative Board Rule (R277-407 School Fees), a school is no longer able to supplant programs from other fees collected. In accordance with Utah Code (53G-7-503 {3}), an LEA may not impose an additional fee or increase a fee to supplant or subsidize another fee.

What can fundraised money cover?

Fundraised money can be used to cover all costs associated with the program except for Camps & Clinics where employees are paid using money collected through the Camp & Clinic registration fee. (District guidelines state "coaches may NOT be paid from fundraising, vending revenue, class fees, or donations")
