    Needs-Based Scholarship Instruments and Fee Waivers are available by application to qualifying families. Applications require supporting documentation as specified on the application form. Families that have already been awarded a waiver for School Lunch, Transportation, Elementary Early Morning Program, and Middle School/High School Activities should indicate so on the application form and do not need to reapply for a waiver. Financial Assistance Waivers DO NOT APPLY to the private music lessons offered in the Music Lesson Extension Program (MLEP).

    It is the intention of the Newton Public Schools that no student is denied participation in school-sponsored activities and bus transportation due to the inability to pay. Waivers are based on income and family size as well as special circumstances or temporary hardships.

    Financial Assistance can now be applied for on the district's new online fee and registration system, MySchoolBucks
    Return completed application with supporting documentation to:
    Fine Arts Department
    100 Walnut Street
    Newtonville, MA 02460


    Families that are NOT APPLYING for financial assistance are eligible to register and pay fees online. Payments can be made using your checking account, Discover Card, or Mastercard only.
