Refunding of School Fees
Fee Refund Procedure
The PushCoin system will be used for all payments including student fee payments, food service purchases, field trips and webstore purchases. Funds in a student's wallet can be used to pay for student fee payments, food service purchases, field trips and webstore purchases.
Contributions to a student's PushCoin wallet should be made in amounts that can be reasonably expended by the student each school year. Please note, no automatic refunds will occur.
Refunds from a student wallet will only be processed when there is a qualifying event: graduation or a student withdrawal from the District. Parent/Guardian of students transferring out of the District must complete a refund request to receive a refund. For all graduating seniors, any remaining balance within their account will be transferred to a sibling’s account and notice of the credit sent to the parent/guardian of record via PushCoin notification. If a senior’s account has a credit balance more than $10 and no younger sibling is enrolled, a full refund may be issued upon request. No automatic refunds will occur. All refunds will be made by check to requestor. No refunds will be issued for accounts with a balance of less than $10.
An Income Verification Form (available below) must be completed annually to qualify for a waiver of qualified fees. During the school year registration process, fees for all students will be billed at the full amount. Families may qualify for a reduction of fees through Direct Certification (not Medicaid) or through the income-based paper application below.

ANNUAL ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN NOTICE
Asbestos inspection reports and management plans for each of the schools in CUSD #95 may be examined at the Professional Development Center – Maintenance Office and at the individual school offices. All District 95 schools are in compliance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act. It has been determined by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Federal Environmental Protection Agency that asbestos is a potential health hazard and precautions should be taken to avoid distributing any asbestos containing materials. As required, our buildings were initially inspected for asbestos and a Management Plan was completed in March 1989. The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act required that a visual surveillance of asbestos-containing areas be completed every six months and a re-inspection conducted every three years. Any evidence of disturbance or change in condition is documented in the Management Plan as required. The Management Plan is available for review at 66 Church Street. Should you wish to review the plans, please call (847) 438-2380 to make an appointment between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
