    Parents seeking financial assistance with student fees will be required to complete an additional application for fee waiver with supporting documentation of family size and income. Supporting documentation will be required at the time of application. Parents are asked to submit their application for fee waiver at their child’s school. You can save time and effort by checking to see if you are eligible before filling out the waiver form. 
    Documentation Required:
    Income Verification (all inclusive) *
    • Earnings/Wages/Salary for each job
    • Unemployment Compensation/Disability/or Worker’s Compensation
    • Social Security/Pensions/Retirement/VA Benefits/Strike Benefits
    • Child Support/Alimony
    • All Other Income
    • If you have no income, you will be required to sign and notarize an affidavit attesting to no income.
    The application for fee waiver will not affect the process that is currently in place for students qualifying for free or reduced meals through the National School Lunch Program. You will still need to complete a separate application for free or reduced meals for the school year 2021-2022 through the National School Lunch Program as it is now available. Please note:  Application for Free or Reduced Meals is now available to be submitted online if you choose to do so.  If you choose to submit paper copies, please send/drop them off at your child's school office or email it to tgotchie@sd308.orgStudents identified as Direct Certification through the Illinois State Board of Education will automatically be eligible for fee waivers and will not need to apply. Homeless, migrant or runaway students are automatically eligible for fee waivers and need not apply.
