Extra-Curricular Activities–Participation Fee
 
As outlined in the levy discussions in April 2011, the Licking Heights Local School District is moving forward with the addition of a pay to participate fee as it relates to extra-curricular activities. The institution of a participation fee is intended to recoup a portion of the funds paid from the general fund to support the activities held beyond the normal academic school day (i.e., athletic teams and marching band). These fees will not be applied to co-curricular activities, such as student council, national honor society, etc. All students participating in an extra-curricular activity will pay a participation fee. A paid participation fee does not guarantee that a student will play. The direction for the sport/activity will remain the responsibility of the coach/director.
The pay to participate program will be reviewed at the conclusion of each year of operation.
 
Payment
 
Students participating in athletics and/or marching band will be permitted to participate in practice until the payment deadline. If payment is not received in full by the payment deadline, the student will not be able to attend practice, contests or scrimmages until payment is made in full.

Fees should be paid in the athletic department between the hours of 8am and 3:30pm. Payment can be made in the form of cash, check, or money order. All checks/money orders must be made out to: Licking Heights Local School District. The student’s name and activity should be noted on the check. The district has an online payment system through EZ Pay. There is a link on the district’s and athletic website, please check the website for more information.  To pay online click here.

There will be no waiver of pay to participate fees due to free or reduced lunch status or any other financial hardship.

There will be no caps on fees paid by one (1) family.

In the event that a check is returned (i.e. “bounces”), the student will not be permitted to attend practice, contests or scrimmages until the fee is paid in full through the district’s returned check process. Once the collection process has started, cash payments will not be accepted to remedy a returned check.
