If you are registering a student for public school, please take a photo or scan your receipt and email it to asc(at)alabamaschoolconnection.org.
Or share it directly to social media with the hashtag #alschoolfees.
Knowing which school or school district you’re paying your fees to would be helpful, but no children’s names please. If you email your receipt, identifying information will be removed before sharing.
Please share this request as widely as possible. If you’re posting a picture of a receipt on social media, please remember to remove your child’s name.
