For parents when kids go back to school it means back to the wallet.

You’ve paid property taxes which support your school district, you went and bought all of those supplies for the first day and when they finally get to school there is a fee.

We are not talking about the extra fees for a student to play a sport, or to take AP classes, or classes like photography that have equipment.

This is the fee every student pays just for attending the school.

What we are finding is most schools have a fee that is used for some classroom supplies, field trips or equipment.

Then some districts charge a technology fee.

In a lot of cases the technology fee goes towards every student given a tablet or laptop like Google Chromebooks which appears to be the most common in Northeast Ohio.

Lakewood City School District:

  • Elementary: $20 activity fee
  • Middle school: $35 activity and $50 tech fee (Chromebook)
  • High school: $31 activity and $50 tech fee (Chromebook)

Bay Village City School District:

  • K-8: $50 fee
  • High school: $90 fee (includes $18 for Chromebook)

Parma City School District:

  • K-7 $45
  • High school $10 (several classes require separate fees)

Akron Public Schools:

No fee applied
