Fees and Waivers

Fees for the 2014-15 school year

We wish the CBE didn’t have to charge fees but they are an unfortunate reality. In some cases, government funding doesn’t cover the full cost of providing programs and services to our students. Fees are charged to cover the gap between the cost of programs and services and the funding.

Many difficult decisions were made in creating the 2014-15 operating budget, including the decision to no longer subsidize fees with instructional dollars. This will result in fee increases for the 2014-15 school year. It’s important to know that we have a waiver system for families who can’t pay.
