The full Tredyffrin-Easttown School Board will consider a proposal to charge a $50 activities fee for middle and high school students involved in most sports and activities.

The participation fee would be charged once for participation in one or more activities during the 2012-2013 school year. Included in the participation fee are all Conestoga High School, Tredyffrin-Easttown Middle and Valley Forge Middle School sports and activities that have a paid coach or advisor or use District-funded transportation. Conestoga High School crew, ice hockey, rugby, and squash clubs are not included in the proposal.
