See your counselor for current year foundation allowance. For the 2023-24 school year, the maximum amount allowed for all expenses excluding transportation related to the course is $762.50. If charges exceed such payment the student and his/her parents are responsible for the remaining charges.

In the event reimbursement is not made in a reasonable period of time, the Superintendent is authorized to file claim against the student and/or his/her parents in Small Claims Court for collection." Note: The student will not be permitted to enroll in a replacement class at CHS unless this reimbursement has been received.
