Nippersink keeps fees level for registration in 2013-14

RICHMOND – Registration fees for Nippersink District 2 will stay the same for the coming school year, the school board decided.

Unlike its sports fees, the district’s registration fees were on par with other area districts, a survey conducted by the district found.

The district charges $75 for early childhood education, $95 for kindergarten and $125 for grades first through eighth. The kindergarten, elementary and middle school fees include a technology and science fee on top of the base registration fee.

At its January meeting, the board cut both competitive and noncompetitive sport fees, to $50 from $150 and to $35 from $50, respectively.

The board also waived the $35 fee to participate on a Future Problem Solving team, a competitive academic program required for students in advanced language arts.

Nippersink District 2 includes Spring Grove and Richmond elementary schools and Nippersink Middle School.
