Staffing and Transportation Offset Fee:

As an elective program in our schools, it would typically require approximately 24 students to fully cover staffing and administrative costs, and therefore not divert funding away from other elective choices or core courses. The staffing offset fee will be placed in a separate account, and if it is determined that the Academy enrollment adds costs to DRMS, it will be used to offset those costs. Transportation offset fee $300 – to offset any additional off-campus transportation to and from external facilities if required. Fees are due and payable at the beginning of the school year.  Participants will be granted a full or partial refund of these fee’s if it is determined there are no additional costs for the program.
