The Reynoldsburg Board of Education voted Tuesday to reduce athletic and music fees by about half. Fall athletes and musicians who have already paid fees this school year will be refunded the difference.
The new fees will be $170 for sports, $80 for marching band and $40 for concert band, choir and orchestra.
The reduction was made possible by increased revenue from the district’s open enrollment program in the 2014-15 school year. Open enrollment revenues have already funded the addition of 17 core teaching positions and more than a dozen support staff positions.
