    2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR REGISTRATION AND FEE PAYMENTS

    Registration and fee payment for the 2020-21 school year is open online for all returning and new students. All-virtual registration closed on Aug. 5 so that staffing and training can occur before school begins. A $2 non-refundable service fee is charged for all debit/credit card payments. Families continue to have the option to pay fees by electronic check. No service fee is charged with this method of payment.


    *Families new to Blue Valley should use the New Student Registration link to begin the registration process. To create a new account, select More Options and Create a New Account.


    In addition to reviewing and updating student demographic information, medical information and consents, families will have the opportunity to choose an all-virtual option, VirtualED, for their student(s). When opting for any of the VirtualED choices, additional steps are required.

    REGISTER FOR IN-PERSON

    If you would like to register your student for school in an in-person setting, the registration process will remain similar to years past. Register now!  The default enrollment for students is the In-Person option. If you want to remain enrolled in the In-Person option, no selection is needed. Online registration can be completed in a typical manner.

     

    IN-PERSON + VIRTUAL (HIGH SCHOOL ONLY) (REGISTRATION CLOSED AUG.5)

    High School students have the option to take some courses in-person and some courses virtually. Those who want to add or switch to virtual courses to their schedule should follow the directions below for "In-Person + Virtual." Students who choose this combination of settings should be aware of these conditions: 

      • Students will not be allowed to stay on campus to do their Virtual coursework.

      • If a student's in-person school day begins or ends during the normal school day, transportation will not be provided.

      • Students will not be allowed to enter or leave a school building multiple times per day. In-person classes must be scheduled back-to-back during the day to minimize transitions between settings.

      • Courses are subject to availability in the in-person and virtual setting. The time of day for the available courses will be determined by the building's master schedule and enrollment; specific class periods cannot be guaranteed. A waitlist will be created when a section is full.

      • Students can decide to change format of a course (in-person to virtual) during the registration process for those that a virtual option is offered. Once that choice is made, students will not be allowed to reverse that decision due to staffing constraints.

      • In alignment with in-person courses, VirtualED students may not request schedule changes after the fifth day of school. Format changes (in-person to virtual and vice versa) will be limited to space available. 

      • Students who have a blend of in-person and virtual courses may encounter scheduling conflicts where an in-person class and a virtual synchronous/live session are at the same time. Students will need to work through these situations with the teachers involved. Students' grades will not be adversely affected by these situations. To take advantage of this opportunity, there is an additional step to the registration process.

FEES

  • REQUIRED FEES

    Blue Valley Schools charges a variety of required fees, which are reviewed annually and revised as necessary. A $2 non-refundable service fee is charged for all debit/credit card payments. The service fee is collected by the third-party processor to cover the processing of payments, similar to online banking fees. Families will continue to have the option to pay fees by electronic check. No service fee is charged with this method of payment.

    These fees include, but are not limited to:

     

    Learning Resource Fee

    (elementary, middle and high school)
    Collected at a rate of $115 per student, this fee is primarily used to purchase materials and supplies that support educational initiatives in the classroom.

    Activity Programming Fees

    (middle and high school)
    The activity programming fee is collected at a rate of $25, sixth grade; $55, seventh grade; $90, eighth grade; and $135 9th-12th grades. Please note there will be a $250 maximum payable amount for families with multiple Blue Valley students. This fee helps support all sports, activities, clubs and other supplemental contract items that require extra-duty supervision from qualified district staff. It only covers a portion of the costs for a student team activity and does not replace fees currently being charged for programs such as drill team, cheerleading, certain clubs or sports.


    This fee will be refunded, upon request, to any student who did not participate in any KSHAA or non-KSHAA activity, school club or any other non-required activity offered at the school. Requests for a refund must be submitted by June 1, 2021, for the 2020-21 school year. 

     

    Exploratory/Elective Fees 

    (middle and high school)
    Certain exploratory/elective courses include additional fees. Course fees for middle and high school exploratory/elective courses are available with online student registration packets. Fee amounts will be finalized and assigned when official schedules are available in August.

    Middle School students who qualify for free or reduced meals through the Food and Nutrition Services program are entitled to waiver of exploratory/elective class fees. All High School/CAPS student’s exploratory/elective fees cannot be waived regardless of the student’s free and reduced status. For more information, contact your child's school administrator or bookkeeper. 

     

    Fee-Based Programs

    Blue Valley offers a fee-based early childhood peer model program. Contact Julie Bolton at (913) 239-4331 for more information.

     

    NOTE: While Blue Valley Schools receives the majority of its funding from the state of Kansas, the law allows school districts to charge back for certain expenses, including those listed above. District fees will be waived for students who qualify for free and reduced lunches, except for high school level course fees. Payment plans are also available for families who do not qualify for free and reduced lunches. Please contact your school's bookkeeper for more information.
