Fall Fair Share
The Fairfield Unified School District funds only a small part of our school band program. To meet our annual operating expenses, each band family must contribute an equal amount or a "Fair Share" of the expenses that are not covered by the school district budget or fundraising alone. We make every effort to keep our Fair Share fees as affordable as possible through fundraising, seeking donations from business partners, and by relying on parent and student volunteers to help with the work of running this band program. The best way for parents to assist in keeping the Fair Share fees low for all students is to pay their Fair Share in a timely manner and to be involved with fundraising and volunteering.
Many of the fundraisers that we do directly affect your Fair Share because, without participation, every family would have to pay more out-of-pocket. Without fundraising, Fair Share assessments would be significantly higher. We use the term and concept of Fair Share because payments and credits are used collectively for the operating expenses of the entire band, rather than for the benefit of the individual student. All Fair Share payments and fundraising credits go into the general operating account and may be used for such expenses as:
Uniform Care and Dry Cleaning
Instruments and Repairs
Music Licensing and Drill Design
Equipment and Supplies
The 2023 Fall Season estimated Fair Share amount is $695.00 per student.
