School Board says no to increasing activity fees

Ozaukee Press Staff

The Northern Ozaukee School Board voted last week to not increase activity fees for the 2019-20 school year.

Fees are used to offset the costs of supplies, printing and other expenses.

District Supt. Dave Karrels recommended that fees not be increased to encourage students to become more active in school extracurricular activities.

“We want the highest level of involvement as possible,” he told board members.

They agreed, approving the recommendation unanimously.

Fees for the 2019-20 school year will include:

• Half-day 4K, $45. 

• Full-day 4K, $75.

• Grades six to eight, $75, with a $15 ID fee that includes an athletic pass to all home contests.

The activity fee for each sport is $30 for up to three sports; four or more sports are free.

• Grades nine to 12, $75, with a $15 ID fee, $50 sports participation fee for first and second sport; three or more sports are free.  The student parking fee is $90 for the year.

In other action, the board:

• Accepted a $164,000 technology grant from the Bruce Krier Foundation to be used to update the library media center.

It’s the third year in a row the district has received a technology grant from the foundation. Over that period, the district has received $481,000.

• Increased next year’s lunch prices by 10 cents, to $2.70 at the elementary school and $2.95 at the middle and high schools.
