The Utah State Legislature's House Bill (H.B.) 250: School Fee Revisions, was passed to insure that fees in the public school system do not create a barrier to full participation for any student, regardless of their financial circumstances. This includes creating standards and requirements for student fee policies, fee schedules, conditions for charging student fees, and ensuring fee waivers are available for students.
"Fee" means something of monetary value requested or required by a Local Education Agency (LEA) as a condition to a student's participation in an activity, class, or program provided, sponsored, or supported by a school. (Reference: R277-407-2(3)(a))
Local Education Agencies and each school will be required to complete a Certificate of Compliance annually. The deadline for submission is October 31.
