Every student, every day, preparing for the future.
Free / Reduced Enrollment Fees

Enrollment fees include curriculum and technology for grades K-12. Program support fee is for grades 6-12. A fee reduction (50 percent) or full waiver system has been established based on family income guidelines. Families who feel they qualify may obtain a waiver request form from any school office in the district. A copy of the waiver request must be presented at the time of payment to the building secretary or bookkeeper. Waivers will only be accepted during enrollment and up to the first day of school. The waiver system will be honored for qualifying transfer students. Families that qualify after the first day of school and paid full fees during enrollment will not receive a refund. 

Students who have paid full enrollment fees and then withdraw completely from Derby Public Schools anytime during the first semester will, upon request, have one half of the amount paid for the fee refunded. Mid-year graduates will receive a refund at 50 percent of fees paid. There will be no refund of these fees for students who withdraw after the beginning of the second semester. 


The curriculum fee does not cover the cost of any book or property checked out to a student and subsequently reported as lost/damaged. The costs of lost/damaged materials will be determined at the time the report is made.

Students who are initially enrolled in less than a full-time schedule will be charged curriculum fees at a

rate that matches the ratio of the number of classes they are enrolled in. A full-time schedule is considered to be the number of hours that are offered to all students in that building during the normal school day. Students who are enrolled in dual credit courses are still considered to be full-time students at Derby Public Schools.
