Supplemental Fees - by course

In accordance with the School Act, all students at Carson Graham Secondary receive free of charge an educational program sufficient to meet the general requirements for graduation.  In accordance with the School Board Fees Order, supplemental fees may be charged for goods and services associated with optional enrichment activities and take home items that extend learning outcomes for students beyond the basic educational program. Supplemental fees are published in the Course Programming Guide available online.

Workbooks - by course

Where students are required to use workbooks in order to meet the course/subject learning outcomes and/or for assessment, workbooks will be provided free of charge.  Students may have the opportunity to purchase workbooks that are suggested for optional, supplemental "practice" and are not marked as part of the students' assessments.  Purchase of these workbooks is completely optional as they are not required for successful completion of the courses' learning outcomes.  These workbooks are available for purchase at cost from the school.

International Students

Due to fees already paid at the District level, the Student Activity Fee is waived. Supplemental fees for courses not needed to graduate (Home Ec, Photography) apply.

Textbook Policy

Students are assigned textbooks by the subject teacher. There is no rental fee charged; however, a student who loses or damages a textbook will be assessed a replacement or damage fee. Students must return the textbook assigned to them. Textbooks are numbered. At distribution time, teachers record the number and students sign a textbook record sheet in receipt and acknowledgement. Students must record their textbook name and number on the form included in their agenda book for their own records. Refunds will be given only if lost textbooks are found and returned by the first week of July. 

Student invoices will be available on line October 12 for fees owing for the current school year.  A refund will be issued when a student withdraws from Carson Graham Secondary provided all withdrawal procedures are completed and all books/materials are handed in. Refund of fees paid will be prorated up until the end of January. After that time, there will be no refund of supplemental fees. If a refund is due to a student whose sibling has outstanding fees, the refund will first be applied to the sibling's outstanding fees. 

Note: $25.00 will be charged for NSF cheques.
