LOWELL | The Tri-Creek School Board recently approved textbook fees and supplemental fees for the upcoming school year.

Lynne Haberlin, the Tri-Creek director of innovations in learning, said there are no dramatic changes.

"We've kept our fees steady for the past three years," she said.

In general, the elementary fees will be down 3 to 6 percent because Tri-Creek is not changing reading materials this school year, Haberlin said.

High school textbook rental fees will be slightly higher this year. Those including online courses can expect to pay a supplemental fee of about $25 for software, she said.

At Lowell Middle School, costs are up and down, Haberlin said, because there are more curricular options. What parents will pay will depend on what subjects their students take.

"We do our best to keep fees as low as possible. We understand this is a concern for parents, especially those with large families," Haberlin said.

She said there are fewer textbook companies, so pricing is less competitive.

"We're a textbook rental state; many others are not," she said.

Registration is Thursday and Friday at Lowell High School.
