Main Points

Every high school and middle school student-athlete who participates on a CMS athletic team either pays the participation fee or meets waiver criteria. This proposed $25 increase in the participation fee is needed to meet rising operational expenses necessary to maintain athletic programs in the district's middle schools.   The high school participation fee will increase from $100 to $125 and the middle school participation fee will increase from $50 to $75.

Fiscal Implications
 The estimated revenue generated from the participation fee increase will be $250,000.
