School Textbook Fees

  • School City of Mishawaka continues its efforts to contain curricular materials fees. We have conducted a thorough audit at all grade levels to remove as many paid licensing materials as possible and replace them with high-quality Open Educational Resources. The fee assessments for 2022-2023 reflect our efforts to keep fees reasonably contained.  

    For the 2022–2023 School Year, grades K-6 fees have been reduced to $100.

    Grades 7 is a flat rate of $145 and grade 8 is a flat rate of $165.

    Students in Grades 9-12 student fees are dependent on the specific courses.
