Pay to Participate Information

Hunterdon Central strives to provide students with opportunities to become involved in a wide variety of extracurricular activities, clubs and organizations. Due to budgetary constraints, certain extracurricular activities require a fee for participation; this fee helps to alleviate the costs associated with the activity.

User Fee Policy and Procedure for 2018-2019 School Year

All participants on athletic teams (all levels), cheerleading (all levels), pit, jazz and marching bands, madrigal and chorale, and all theatrical productions will be assessed an annual activity fee of $100. This fee will cover all sports and some extracurricular activities (listed below) for the entire school year, for any high school student in grades 9 through 12. Once the fee is paid, students may participate in multiple athletic and extra-curricular activities offered during the school year. Parents with multiple children will pay a maximum of $200 annually, regardless of the number of children attending Hunterdon Central.

Payment Due Dates:

  • Athletic Teams/Cheerleading – After team selection.
  • Dance Team - September 30
  • Madrigal/Chorale – September 30
  • Marching Band – August 31
  • Members of Theatrical Productions – Prior to the first official practice

The user fee is non-refundable. Any participant who leaves a club, activity or team voluntarily or who is dropped for disciplinary or scholastic deficiencies, is not eligible for a refund.

Students who are eligible for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program are exempt from paying this fee. When returning this form please check the appropriate box below. The Board of Education understands that some families, due to financial hardship, may be unable to pay all or part of the extracurricular fee. It is the intent of the Board that no student is denied the right to participate due to the inability to pay. Should you need an exemption, please contact your building principal who will review your situation and make a determination. This matter will be held confidential.

Parents and students should understand that this fee allows students to participate. It does not guarantee participation time in games, leads in performances, etc., nor does it ensure specific positions on a team. Those decisions will remain with the coaches and advisors. Fees collected in this manner are designed to help partially defray the operational cost of offering the programs.
