In response to the reduction in state funding and the need to decrease expenditures throughout the district, La Porte ISD will begin assessing an activity participation fee for the 2011-2012 school year.
The purpose of the fee is to provide catastrophic insurance coverage and University Interscholastic League blanket coverage insurance for students in school extracurricular activity organizations. The cost of this insurance, whcih is estimated at $29,000, will be offset by the activity participation fees paid to the district.
Students in grades 7-12 who will be participating in athletics, cheerleading, marching band, drill team and ROTC will pay the $30 activity participation fee once each year. The fee will be assessed only once regardless of the number of activities in which the student participates. Families/households with multiple students participating will pay a maximum of $60 even if more than two students participate.
More information regarding the activity participation fee will be distributed in student registration packets for the 2011-12 school year.
