Financial Hardship Policy

The school district has a policy regarding financial hardship for students, and how students shouldn’t be denied opportunities because their parents can’t afford to pay for things such as field trips:
The Board of Education of School District No. 57 (Prince George) is committed to ensuring that no student is denied an opportunity to participate in a course, class or program because of financial hardship.

If parents are having difficulty, they are encouraged to contact their school administration to ask for information about the hardship application process. As per policy:

“The hardship application process may be formal or informal.  The process must always, however, respect an individual’s privacy and dignity and adhere to strict principles of confidentiality and fairness. “
