I've not seen a small school in our area charge fees so I think the better question would be directed at your area. I wouldn't have a band if I charged more than what was essential (shoes, shirt, and necessary repairs).
Thank you, to all who actually answered my query. To those who went on rants, that was not helpful.
So, to put in perspective, we do this:
HS - Instrument Fee 35.00; Supply Fee 30.00; marching shoes 35.00; Show shirt and DriFit shirt 20.00, for a total of 120.00. After their freshman year it lowers to 75.00 if they don't grow out of their shoes or DriFit. We also give our kids opportunity to pay all or part of their fees through the fall fundraiser. My initial inquiry was to see if the fees are in line with other rural area small schools, or not. Not to start a philosophical argument.
