Anderson schools charging athletes to play


Student-athletes at Anderson High School will be charged an annual fee to play on sports teams under a proposal approved
Tuesday by the system’s school board. Starting in the fall, all participants in school-sponsored sports in grades 9
through 12 will be charged a $10 flat fee to participate. The fee is $5 if the student is eligible for free or reduced-price
lunch. The annual fee will be capped at $25 for families with three or more student-athletes.
