Background: At its August meeting, the Board referred Resolution 2122R-012 by Director Carr to the Committee on Accountability, Finance, and Personnel.

The Administration is recommending adoption of the resolution as amended. As the 2021-22 school year is already underway, and MPS schools generally have systems in place to support students who are unable to pay any given fees, the Administration is requesting that it be able to continue exploring the fiscal intricacies and logistics associated with implementing waiving all fees charged to students before the Board considers implementation of the model as presented. The Administration will be prepared to share its findings during the October 2021 Board cycle.
Fiscal Impact Statement: This item does not authorize expenditures.
Implementation and Assessment Plan Upon approval by the Board, the Administration will continue its exploration of the feasibility and logistics of implementing the waiving of all student fees during the 2021-2022 school year.
Recommendation: Your Committee recommends adopting the resolution as detailed in the second attachment to this item.
