No FCPS Athletic Fee in 2012-13

Playing on a team will be much more friendly to wallets.

No FCPS Athletic Fee in 2012-13

Student-athletes in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) no longer have to pay a $100 athletic fee to play on a team.

The School Board eliminated the fee as part of the FY2013 Budget it passed last spring. The elimination of the fee will result in a revenue reduction of $1.7 million annually, FCPS estimates.

Athletes formerly had to pay $100 per sport, though the fee was capped at $200 even if a student was on three school sports teams. It was waived for students who qualified for free and reduced lunch. The fee was in effect during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years.

The $1.7 from Fairfax County.
