Upon registration, a school fee is assessed to help offset the cost of personal use items and consumable materials (school supplies) provided to the student throughout the year and textbook rental. Fees are assessed as follows:
- Elementary Schools - 4-year-old kindergarten, $7; kindergarten through grade 5, $12
- Phoenix Middle School - $25
- DDHS - $40
Pupil fees are payable during registration. Fees are charged and/or refunded on a pro-rated basis for students who do not attend a full school year.
Depending upon the grade level and class there may be additional charges for specific personal use items such as Physical Education uniforms, musical instrument rental, materials for projects, replacement planners, novels and safety goggles.
Both the Phoenix Middle School and Delavan-Darien High School have an annual extra-curricular fee of $25 charged to students who participate in organized after school student activities including clubs, drama, and athletics. Families with multiple students will be charged no more than $50 annually in extra-curricular fees.
If fees cannot be paid at the beginning of the year, arrangements should be made with the office staff on an individual basis for a manageable payment plan. If a plan is not developed, students will not be allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities or graduation until fees and fines are paid in full.
