Annual Student Fees

As in recent years, Ravenswood Elementary School will collect a student fee in order to help off-set some of the additional costs associated with supporting our students’ academics. Our very limited school budget requires additional funding sources in order to provide our students with the enriching school experience we all expect for our children. School fees are an important part of our supplemental funding plan and will help close the gaps in the budget for the following items:

  • Field trips – Help with the cost of busing and any entrance fees associated with class field trips.

  • Technology – Help to pay for computer support services, networking our school’s computers to the CPS server, and printing supplies.

  • Ancillary fee – Help with purchasing equipment and supplies for our art, drama, music and physical education programs.

  • Consumables/Textbooks – Help with the costs associated with purchasing consumable supplies (such as workbooks) and textbooks for our students.

Total annual fee per student: $90

(See below for payment options)

To pay your student fees:

  • Student fees are charged per child. For families with more than three children, the maximum family fee is $250 per year to cover all children in one family.

  • Student fees must be paid with cash, money order, or online.

    • Please give your fee to your child’s classroom teacher in an envelope marked with your child’s name and “school fee.”

  • Student fees may be paid on either of the following schedules:

    • $90 per child due by October 31.

    • $45 per child due by October 31 and the remaining $45 due by January 31.
