School Fees

In August of 2019, Alberta Regulation 95/2019 School Fees Regulation was passed by the Government of Alberta. As a result, there are no basic school fees for the 2019/2020 school year on.

The Division has been directed through Ministerial Order to

  • Not charge fees or costs for textbooks, workbooks, photocopying, printing or paper supplies.
  • Only charge fees up to the amounts in the schedule approved by the Board of Education
  • Only charge amounts to cover projected costs of providing for the subject matter of the charge.
