School Fees & Donations (for field trips, classroom supplies/equipment, etc)


California High School follows state law regarding fees and donations.  

Public education must be provided to students free of charge, unless a charge is specifically authorized by law for a particular program or activity. The right of free access prohibits mandated purchases of materials, supplies, equipment or uniforms associated with the activity, as well as the payment of security deposits for access, participation, materials or equipment.


Voluntary donations are solicited for some programs and students may participate without making a donation.  Below are some examples of voluntary donations:
- Participation in athletics

- Class donations (science, performing arts, visual arts, etc)

- Field trips

- Booster group memberships


Some activities are not considered part of the compulsory educational program and have a fee.  If students/families cannot pay for the activity, they may speak to an administrator or counselor because financial support may still be available.

  • prefer use webstore for donations - see Trisa Kent to have a donation button added to webstore
  • send students to Finance office at brunch & lunch to make donations
  • if you collect $ - bring cash & checks to the Finance office DAILY (money should not be in classrooms overnight)
    • put in envelope with class roster list, check mark next to student's name that donated
    • all checks made payable to Cal Hi (never to your name)
