What makes up required fees?

As guided by Illinois law, District 64 charges an annual student fee to support learning by partially offsetting expenses for instructional materials, supplies and technology. Student fees do not cover salaries to deliver education, such as teachers and teacher assistants, or for other staff, such as office/health assistants, custodians, principals, or District administration. The only staff salaries that can be included in fees are for student supervision.

Online Payments

Please visit the Elementary Lunch webpage or the Middle School Lunch wepage for monthly lunch menus and information on how to order/pay. Information on how to apply for free lunch/milk is provided below.

Application for Free Lunch/Milk and Student Fee Waiver

In order that no student is denied educational services due to the inability of parents or guardians to pay, the District waives fees for students who meet certain eligibility criteria. Basically, a student is eligible if the family's income is below the levels established by the Federal government. The waiver includes:  the required grade level student fee; middle school interscholastic athletics fee; instrumental music and chorus fee; field trips; and, lunches. Children who receive these benefits are treated the same as other students; there is no discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex or disability.

Note: There are separate criteria for free lunch/milk eligibility and student fee waiver eligibility.  If you are applying for both free lunch/milk and the student fee waiver, please complete both applications.
