IRON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT
FEE WAIVER REGULATIONS
(TO BE MAILED WITH REGISTRATION MATERIALS TO ALL STUDENTS)
Fees, as identified by the Iron School District Board of Education, will be waived in accordance with the Utah State Board of Education standards for students whose parents or legal guardians verify evidence of inability to pay. Inability to pay is defined as those who are in State Custody, Foster Care, or receiving public assistance in the form of Aid to Dependent Children, Supplemental Security Income, or are eligible for free school lunch. Case by case determinations are made for those who do not qualify under one of the foregoing standards but who, because of extenuating circumstances such as, but not limited to, exceptional financial burdens such as loss or substantial reduction of income or extraordinary medical expenses, are not reasonably capable of paying the fee.
A student desiring a fee waiver will present to the principal of the school a written communication provided by the Utah Department of Social Services or the Social Security Office in the case of "Supplemental Security Income," verifying the need for the waiver. In the case of eligibility for free school lunch, verification of income will be required.
In the event that the student requires a fee waiver accommodation other than the above-stated procedure, the principal, with the permission of the parent or legal guardian, may require community service as an alternative to the payment of the fee or the waiver. The principal and staff will maintain confidentially with reference to students who have received waivers or alternatives to waivers.
