Student Fees

Student Fees

Cincinnati Public Schools collects student fees annually. The money is used to pay for part of the cost of essential classroom materials.

Student fees are based on a family's income and the number of children in the family who are enrolled in Cincinnati Public Schools.  
If a student's family income qualifies for the federal Free or Reduced-price Lunch program, student fees may be waived or reduced, but families must fill out the form each school year.
A separate Student Fee Form must be filled out for each child.

Payments are accepted in cash (exact amount only), online at, by money order or certified checks. (No personal checks accepted.)

Student fees can be paid online with Visa or MasterCard credit cards, or a checking account.
