Pay to Play Fees

The Springfield School Board voted Thursday night to suspend pay-to-play fees for student athletes.  The suspension of fees will be for three years and families who have already paid fees for this year will be reimbursed.

Superintendent Dr. David Estrop says the district's decision to suspend fees for three years is due in large part to the community’s support in May of a 2.2-mill bond levy. Athletes have been paying up to $150 to play sports at the middle and high school levels.
