Activity Fees (FS 1002.32.5)

The mission of P.K. Yonge Activity Fees was clarified by a SAC Subcommittee and approved by SAC May, 2012: The P.K. Yonge activity fee allows all students an equal opportunity to be enriched by the school experience. This fee is used to support student activities and services beyond the core instruction programs. Student fees will not be used to support facilities or school operations. The P.K. Yonge School Advisory Council reviews and approves the Activity Fees budget each year.
