Iowa law: Students shouldn't be charged fees for field trips

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)-- State officials are putting their foot down when it comes to asking for money in order to pay for for activities and field trips during the day.

For years, parents have been asked to supply money for those activities, but the practice is not allowed under Iowa law.

The declaratory order came after the Ames School District in February asked the state for clarification regarding the legality of 17 various fees charged by the district.

Parent-teacher organizations and other groups can help raise money to contribute to school activities.
