District 308 Fee Waiver Application Process
for School year 2016-2017

The Board of Education adopted policy 4.140, Waiver of Student Fees, on May 12, 2014. A copy of the policy can be viewed by clicking here.
Beginning with the 2013-2014 School Year, District 308 will no longer waive student fees based on application for the National School Lunch Program. 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. Click here to see if you are eligible.
Documentation Required:
Total Number of Household Members:
  • Page 1 of Form 1040 - U.S. Income Tax Return; or
  • Insurance card listing all family members; or
  • Signed and notarized affidavit attesting to the number of family members (your school may have a notary on staff- check with your child’s school)
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 through the National School Lunch Program when it becomes available at the end of July 2016. Students 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.
The fee waiver application and instructions are available below. For immediate questions, please contact the District’s Business Office at 630-636-3662 or your child’s school directly. Below you will see an example of a fee waiver application.
