Student Fees

The student fee policy below was adopted by the ISL Board of Trustees on October 30, 2019. Revised language was adopted on December 11, 2019.

 

Authorized Fees: none

The International School of Louisiana does not require the payment of any fees in order for students to enroll, to receive their records, or to participate in curricular or co-curricular activities. No fees that are not authorized by this policy will be assessed.

 

Each year, recommended student supply lists will be published on the ISL web site; these lists are approved by the campus Principal. The supplies listed are not required, and the total cost per child will not exceed $200 per year. 

 

Because ISL does not collect any fees, there is no process for requesting an economic hardship waiver, nor are there waiver criteria or an appeals process for waiver decisions. Questions about this policy may be directed to Chief of Operations Emily Thomas, ethomas@isl-edu.org.

 

Families who have the means to do so are invited to make an annual contribution toward our enrichment programs (music, visual arts, and circus arts). Families may be asked to send money to school with their student on occasion to cover the cost of field trips, if they have the ability to do so; these contributions are not mandatory and no student will be prohibited from attending field trips on the basis of non-payment of field trip costs.
