Poll: Do You Support Sports Fee Increase?

The proposal to boost fees by $50 would cover the athletic programs' funding shortfall.

The School Committee is considering raising the  playing fees by $50 next year to $300.

The fees would remain capped at $1,250 a year per family. And families that can demonstrate they cannot afford the fees will be reviewed on a case by case basis by High School Principal Layne Millington.

The fee increase would generate the $30,000 the athletic department says it needs because the current budget of $185,000 is not enough to cover the cost of running the sports programs, including four new varsity sports, Budget Director Ed Cronin told the committee.
