As per Act 240 of 2019, our student fee policy below is as follows:
Authorized Fees: none
New Harmony is a free, public, open-enrollment school and does not currently collect fees of any type for curricular or extracurricular activities. New Harmony does not require the payment of any fees in order for students to enroll, to receive their records, or to participate in curricular or co-curricular activities. No fees that are not authorized by this policy will be assessed.
Each year, recommended student supply lists will be published on the New Harmony web site and/or supplied to parents and families upon enrollment. These recommended supply lists are approved by the School Leader. The supplies listed are not required to enroll or participate, and the total cost per child will not exceed $100 per year.
Because New Harmony does not collect any fees, there is no process for requesting an economic hardship waiver, nor are there waiver criteria or an appeals process for waiver decisions. Questions about this policy may be directed to Operations Coordinator Rae Banks at email@example.com.
Families who have the means to do so are invited to make an annual contribution toward community engagement programming such as Leaving to Learn outings. Families may be asked to send money to school with their student on occasion to cover the cost of field trips, if they have the ability to do so; these contributions are not mandatory and no student will be prohibited from attending field trips on the basis of non-payment of field trip costs.
