Due to the diversity of socio-economic populations served by the program, we use a sliding scale to determine the fee for each class. The fee per class ranges between $60 and $300 and is based on the percentage of students at your school receiving free/reduced-price meals. If you don’t know this statistic off the top of your head, you can look it up on the Education Data Partnership website.
Please use the table below to determine the fee for your class’s participation in the Splash program.
|% of students receiving free/reduced lunches||Fee per class|
|80% – 100%||$60|
|60% – 79%||$120|
|40% – 59%||$180|
|20% – 39%||$240|
|0% – 19%||$300|
We recognize that some students have trouble finding money for field trips. Although it is common, we believe that teachers should not have to pay out-of-pocket for these students. For this reason, we are happy to offer partial scholarships to classes that would otherwise be unable to participate due to the program fees.
