Athletic Participation Fee Increase

The athletic participation fee has increased for the 2016-2017 school year

Thank you for choosing to participate in the high school athletic program within Adams 12 Five Star Schools.

Participation fees help support, in part, the costs (equipment, transportation, coaches, game officials, etc.) associated with our CHSAA sanctioned sports. As a result of rising costs and continued budget constraints due to reduced funding from the state, Adams 12 Five Star Schools faces the need to adjust its athletic fees beginning with the 2016-2017 school year. Participation fees have remained the same for the past four years.

The new participation fee per sport will be $150 (maximum of $300 per participant per academic year).

This fee puts the Five Star District in line with several large school districts like ours, including Douglas County, Jeffco and St. Vrain.

Students participating in the free and reduced price lunch program will continue to receive assistance with athletic fees so that all students have an opportunity to participate in district athletic programs.
