Student Fee Waiver Process

The Board of Trustees has established a student fee structure for student services. The Board of Trustees recognizes that while fees are necessary, some parents or students may be unable to afford such fees. To ensure that students have access to a basic education the Board, through this policy, makes provision for forgiving fees where economic hardship can be demonstrated.
 
PROCEDURES:

  1. Applications for waiver or adjusting of the fee will be made directly to the Secretary-Treasurer who will be responsible for making the appropriate determination.
  2. The Secretary-Treasurer in consultation with the Superintendent shall establish criteria by which applications are evaluated
  3. Each application will be assessed on an individual basis from the information provided on the application form, supplemented, if necessary, by discussion with the applicant
  4. Rejected applicants may appeal to the Superintendent of Schools

IAP Kids Plus Accident Insurance

Our school board is offering you the opportunity to voluntarily purchase student accident insurance through the Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance provides protection against unexpected costs arising from accidental injuries. The program is especially valuable for families who:

  • Do not have medical or dental plans
  • Have limited plans, as it may help supplement health and dental benefits, or
  • Have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities. 

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance has a selection of plans to suit most budgets. Benefits include coverage for:

  • The full school year (September to September), 24 hours a day, while at home and in school;
  • Expenses that are often limited or not covered by private or group insurance plans, or Provincial Health Insurance Plans, such as ambulance, physiotherapy, private tutoring, counselling, and much more;
  • Injury-related dental treatment (including future dental treatment up to age 26);
  • Out-of-province or country emergency medical expenses.

If your address changes during the school year, your Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance plan is transferable from school to school, anywhere in Canada.
 
Insurance premiums for children are $14.50 or $33.50 per year, depending on the plan selected.  A discount is available for families with 3 or more children.  Adults age 20 to 64 can also be insured for $32.00 per year.
