Twinsburg School officials unveiled the new student fees for the 2013-2014 school year.
Some fees increased and others went down. School officials said they have put in lots of effort to listen to parents and properly calibrate the fees.
"We really listened to what our parents said," said Superintendent Kathi Powers. "We made some adjustments and we took a hard look at where we can save money for our parents moving forward."
The current school year is the first one in which the district charged student pay-to-participate fees, which include academic fees paid by all students, course fees for AP and other middle and high school classes and pay to participate in athletics and clubs.
School officials anticipated making nearly $300,000 in revenue from student fees in the current school year. Powers said she will bring final numbers on how much is expected to be brought in at the next school board meeting.
Fees can be paid online through the Twinsburg Schools website, or by submitting a paper form.
