Discussion on School Fee Structure for 2024-2025 School Year

December 22, 2023

Dear Heritage Hills school families,

Under Alberta Education’s School Fee Regulation, schools must consult with parents prior to setting school fees for the upcoming school year.

Our next school council meeting will be taking place on January 17th, 2024, at 6:30pm. During that time, I’ll be sharing information about our current fee structure, posing specific questions about priorities, and asking you to provide your feedback as we plan for the next school year. While many of these activities and services enhance students’ educational experience, we want to ensure these fees aren’t cost prohibitive for families.

Specifically, we will be asking for input on the following:

  • Optional courses and associated fees
  • Noon hour supervision
  • Field trips and associated fees
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Non-curricular goods and services (for example, student union and yearbooks)

For your reference, below is a link to the school fees information located on the Heritage Hills Elementary School website.  The webpage includes the current School Fees Schedule for 2023-2024, as well as information on waiver of fees, refunds and student transportation fees.

I understand not all families will be available to attend the meeting but it’s still important we get as much input from the school community as possible.  Following the meeting, all information will be shared via email and parents and guardians will have the opportunity to access a google form to provide feedback.

School administration will use feedback provided to help determine fees for next year, which will then be shared at the March school council meeting, posted to our website and shared via link through email.

I look forward to hearing from you on January 17th, 2024.


Bill Schlacht, Principal
Heritage Hills School
