STUDENT FEES - EFFECTIVE FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR
North Shore School District 112 charges each student a "Registration Fee", which is an apportionment of the cost of consumable instructional materials and supplies that are needed by the Schools. These include workbooks, subscriptions, duplicating paper for materials distributed in class, science materials, paint, glue, chalk, and pencils used and consumed in class.
The fees charged by North Shore School District 112 are comparable with those charged by surrounding school districts. The School District currently does not charge additional fees for Sports, Arts, Music, or Clubs.
In a typical year, North Shore School District 112 collects approximately $500,000 in general registration fees. The budget for curriculum materials in addition to the budget of the individual schools for general supplies and consumable materials is $2.7 million each year.
Illinois statutes permit public school districts to charge students a fee for the rental of textbooks, as well as fees for consumable materials and supplies that are used in the course of a student's education. Illinois courts have consistently upheld the legality of schools charging fees for textbook rental and supplies. In general, school districts may not charge tuition to students residing in the district who attend public schools.
