WSD Financial Assistance
Parent /Guardian Information
As part of the educational experience in the Wissahickon School District, there are a variety of fees that are assessed to support our academic and co-curricular programs. In some cases, these fees help protect our investment in 21st century technology, such as insurance for the laptops provided to each student in grades 6-12.
Other fees support curriculum-related events such as field trips. As a student moves into the high school years, there are fees for college related tests, such as SAT/PSAT. Additionally, there may be fees associated with activities such as athletics, music, art, clubs or school-sponsored events such as dances.
All of these programs and activities are considered to be an important part of each student’s educational experience. Wissahickon values our families’ support in funding these exceptional programs and activities which enhance the student’s academic, social, physical and emotional growth. However, we also realize that these fees may present a hardship to a family, and as a result, it is our mission to ensure that no student goes without necessary school supplies or forgoes participation in an activity/school event due to the expense.
In support of that mission, the district offers waivers to a family with financial need for various expenses and fees that are considered essential to a child’s education. Click on the menu items below to view more information.
