Why is there a fee to register a kindergarten student with funding

Associate boards are required by Alberta Education to provide the same level of involvement with a kindergarten student as we do for a student in grades 1-12, approval of program plans, and 2 facilitator visits through the school year.  However only 1/2 the amount of funding ($450.50 vs $901.00)  is being given to an associate board for a kindergarten student. This registration fee will help us cover the costs Roots incurres in order to meet the government requirements for an associate board. 

Do non-funded kindergarten students need to pay this registration fee? 

No. Only students who wish to have funding are asked to pay this fee.  Non-funded students do not require facilitator visits or program plans.


Can I use my funding to pay for this fee?

No, kindergarten registration fees are not a reimbursable item.

Who should I talk to if I have more questions?

Please contact the Roots CHEF board of directors at

This fee is non-refundable
