The “Entertainment and Sports Lawyer” recently published an article on the future of afterschool activities that was written by Evan Fieldman, our CEO and Co-Founder. The article, A Temporary Band-Aid: Pay-to-Play Fees and The Extracurricular Crisis, analyzes the implications of charging students fees to participate in sports and arts programs at public schools. Highlights include:
- School districts in 33 states charge students pay-to-play fees.
- Pay-to-play fees for a single student may be more than $700 per activity in one season.
- States across the country are eliminating public funding for school sponsored extracurricular activities.
