Student Fees

Jeffco Public Schools assesses fees for items or services necessary to support student achievement. These fees are reasonably related to the actual cost of the item retained by our students or the service provided to our students. For more information please read the Student Fee Guidance document.

How to Pay Student Fees

Support with Student Fees

The fee schedule is a result of Colorado State Law (CRS 22-32-117). The law allows the Board of Education to authorize the collection of the following mandatory, voluntary and optional fees.

2023-24 Fee Schedule

Mandatory Fees

It is the Board's policy to charge student fees to offset costs associated with:

  • Textbooks
  • One-to-one computing devices
  • Registration fees
  • Tests
  • Supplies for Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes
  • Field trips
  • Materials and use fees for band and vocal music
  • Student IDs

User fees are also assessed (charged) for parking, athletic sports, instrument rental, outdoor lab and technology.

As part of the district's plan to discontinue transportation fees, Jeffco will not charge transportation fees for the 2023-24 school year.

Students who meet one of the following criteria do not have to pay some or all fees:

  1. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch and are verified as homeless, unaccompanied or foster children. 
  2. Students with individual education plans (IEP) when the service or program is written in as a related service on their IEP.

If items are lost, stolen, or not returned in good condition, the students responsible for those items, including those eligible for free or reduced lunch, will be assessed a fine up to the full cost for replacement or repair in accordance with law, Board policy and district procedures.

Voluntary and Optional Fees

Fees can also be charged for school-sponsored activities or programs not within the academic portion of the educational program such as enrollment in preschool, before and after school care, and credit recovery programs. Fees are also charged for college entrance testing, yearbooks, student transcripts and attending athletic/activity events and graduation ceremonies.

Students who are verified as homeless, unaccompanied or foster children will have academic fees waived. Please refer to Community and Family Connections.

The law also requires the following:

  1. The fee shall be used for the designated purpose and shall not be expended for any other purpose.
  2. Fees shall be reasonably related to the actual cost of the consumable supply or service.
  3. A list of fees, how the amount of each fee was determined, and the purpose of each fee shall be made available upon request.
  4. A fee may not be charged as a condition of enrollment in school or as a condition of attendance in any class.
  5. Any publication listing fees shall clearly state whether the fee is mandatory or voluntary/optional and shall specify any activity from which the student shall be excluded if the fee is not paid.

Note: Working within the law and Board policy, principals can determine the fees for their schools. The type and amount of individual fees is different between schools. The fees listed above are the most common fees for a student. There may be other fees depending on the school. For a complete list of fees, contact the school directly.
