Youth Fee Waiver Scholarship Policy

Fee Waiver Scholarships are available for certain activities for children who qualify. The Emporia Recreation Center will follow the  guidelines used by USD 253 to determine the qualifications for free or reduced price meals. 

Those who reside in the USD 253 school district and are enrolled in kindergarten through tenth grade, may apply for a fee waiver by contacting the Emporia Recreation Main Office. Those eligible for free lunches will have a $5.00 co-pay per activity those with reduced lunches will pay half of the cost of the activity (unless otherwise noted, i.e. soccer and tackle football).

All fee waiver participants are limited to six activities per year (August through July). Your 2018 / 2019 Food Service Eligibility letter must be shown at time of registration to receive the discount.
