Prairie Grove District 46 is sensitive to the financial burdens that our valued community members face. In an effort to ease these pressures, Administration recommended the elimination of multiple 2018-2019 "add-on" student registration fees including:

  • Uniform rental fees
  • Classroom consumable material fees
  • Physical education supplemental fees
  • Student planner fees
  • Instructional supply fees

In addition, for the third consecutive year, Administration recommended no inflationary increases to 2018-2019 standard - student textbook fees. As demonstrated by the following local survey results, the district's standard textbook fees remains in the lower half of all McHenry County school districts:

District 46 vs County-wide Standard - student textbook fees:

Description | Actual | Average | Variance $ | Variance %

Elementary textbook | $105.00 | $122.22 | $(17.22) | -14%

Junior High textbook | $125.00 | $137.13 | $(12.13) | -9%

On February 13th, the Board of Education approved these recommendations … Saving Taxpayers Thousands of Dollars Annually!!!
