Pay to Participate Fees
Extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, such as athletics, music ensembles, theatrical productions, intramural activities and after-school clubs are an essential component of a well-rounded school experience.
These activities carry costs beyond the academic program for items that may include transportation, uniforms, utilities, equipment, officials, entrance fees and supervision. While the Board of School Directors and Administrators continue to be very supportive of the wide array of after-school offerings available to students, the reality of a constrained school budget necessitates the implementation of athletic/extracurricular/activity bus fees.
As such, a fee schedule was implemented in the 2011-12 school year to help defray the costs of athletic/extracurricular activities. These fees will have a per-family maximum (cap) for each activity category. Fee schedules of similar-size public school districts were reviewed to determine what fees would be enacted by the Seneca Valley School District. More information on those fees and the caps can be found in the form link below.
Please know that Pay to Participate fees will be waived, upon verification, for students who participate in the free and reduced lunch program. In order to be applicable, free and reduced lunch applications must be renewed every year.
The activity buses provide after-school activity/event transportation and will continue to do so; there will be no annual fee for students who use this additional transportation.
