Fair share is a fee assessed to all students participating in the High School and Middle School choral programs. The fee amount is determined by the choral director prior to the start of each school year. It reflects the projected costs that those programs will incur during the course of the school year, including music for concerts and contests, accompanists for concerts and contests, awards, transportation expenses, guest artists, new uniforms and repair and replacement of existing uniforms, chaperones for special events, etc. The fair share fee can be paid outright. Students who elect to participate in designated fund raising activities during the school year may use the profit earned from that fund raiser to cover a portion or all of the fair share expense.
