Dear D128 Parents/Guardians:
At its Aug. 10 Special Board Meeting, the Community High School District 128 Board of Education voted to refund and/or waive the following 2020-21 student fees:
- Basic Fee ($300)
- Parking ($170)
- Activity Pass ($25)
Optional fees, such as yearbook, are not included in the refund and/or waiver.
In recognizing that D128 will begin the school year in eSchool, the Board made the decision to refund and/or waive the identified fees in hopes it would assist families in balancing additional home expenses associated with eSchool. This decision is in effect for the entire 2020-21 school year. The Board’s decision does not set a precedent for future years.
There is nothing families need to do to initiate a refund. Refunds will begin in the next few weeks and could take up to 6-8 weeks depending on the method of payment. Fees paid by credit card will be refunded sooner, and refund checks will take longer. Waived fees not yet collected, will not be collected.
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prentiss G. Lea, Ph.D.
