Book Rental and Fees

Books and support materials are purchased through a book rental and fee program provided by Indiana Statute. Textbooks are purchased on a six-year cycle at a price guaranteed by state bid. Costs are different at each grade level and are monitored by the State Board of Accounts.

In addition to textbook rental, a fee structure is set up for each content and specialty area to assist in the purchase of supplies, materials, and equipment other than textbooks.

Parents who are eligible for book rental assistance are encouraged to apply at the time of registration. **Fees and Materials are not eligible for assistance and must be paid by all patrons.
