Summary: PUEBLO SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 60 STUDENT FEES RESOLUTION FISCAL YEAR 2018-19

WHEREAS, Article IX, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Colorado requires a thorough and uniform system of free public schools throughout the State, wherein all residents of the State of Colorado, between the ages of six and twenty-one years, may be educated gratuitously; and,

WHEREAS, notwithstanding the constitutional requirement of a "free" public school education, the courts have determined that schools in the State may nonetheless lawfully assess students certain textbook and other fees, and Colorado statute CRS 22-32-117 specifically entitles public schools to collect such fees; and,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Education hereby authorizes the Superintendent or her designee to establish a fee schedule and collect reasonable fees, as authorized by law, and ensure the student fees collected will be segregated to ensure the funds are expended for the purpose of the fee charged;

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the attached student fee schedule will be effective July 1, 2018, and during the FY 2018-19 school year, with reasonable discretion of the Superintendent or her designee, to make changes to the student fee schedule to reflect revised fees and the student fee schedule will be brought forward annually for Board of Education approval during the budget adoption process.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we have hereunto set our hands and caused the official seal of Pueblo School District No. 60 to be here unto affixed this 29th day of January, 2019.
