The Central Okanagan School District's Financial Hardship Clause
Within School District Regulation 425R – Student Fees (see www.sd23.bc.ca), the Board of
Education has indicated "that a student will not be excluded from any educational program
due to financial hardship". This clause in the Regulations provides for the private and
confidential consideration of financial circumstances of individual students and families, while
preserving the dignity of families who may be unable to pay. Please contact the school
Principal if you are facing a financial hardship that may restrict the ability of your child to
access a school program.
