How Much Do Parents Pay for Newton Public Schools: The SuperCap

Dear Parents and Guardians of Students in the Newton Public Schools:

This is a reminder of the $1,200 maximum family cost per year for fees, known as the supercap, which is the maximum combined total of all fees which any given family is asked to pay.

There are several combinations of fees which will result in a family reaching the supercap of $1,200 after which point any further fees would be waived.  If you have reached the supercap, please send an email to feepayments@newton.k12.ma.us or call the Business, Finance & Planning Office at 617-559-9025.

You may also access information concerning all fees can be via the following link:
