Fees

School fees are listed below. For returning students, all applicable fees will be assessed on the student's Pushcoin account soon after registration opens.  For new students, fees will be invoiced as soon as the student's registration is approved.  All students should have a PushCoin account.  If you don't have a Pushcoin account, please see the instructions on how to set one up.  It's easy and there is no charge for this. 

Note: unless the student has received a fee waiver, fees are due once they are assessed. You can make payment easily online through  your PushCoin account or stop by your school. Parents and guardians might be entitled to a refund under specific circumstances. Please review the District's refund policy and procedures.

Fee Waiver Application

East Maine School District 63 provides every student with equal educational services regardless of his or her financial means. The District waives fees for students who meet certain eligibility criteria. A student qualifies for a fee waiver if the family’s income is below the designated income to receive free lunches, the student or family is receiving public aid, or the family is faced with an extenuating circumstance, such as illness or unemployment.
