Are schools allowed to charge you a re-registration fee?

Nov 24, 2021

It is that time of the year again when all schools have requested readmission forms to be submitted; cash strap parents already have to budget for book packs, stationery and some schools’ readmission fees. 

Parents have taken to social media to ask if the readmission fee is even legal as many parents battle to keep up with the ever need of schools needing more and more money from parents. 

Many parents in the Johannesburg area have stated that they must pay a readmission fee for students returning to government schools; we see how legal this is.

According to the education laws amendment act 2005, subsection 5 states that no public school may charge registration, administration, or other fees except school fees. 

The only thing required is that parents fill out the readmission forms as this allows schools to know who is returning to the new year in terms of space as well as it helps the schools keep track of personal information that may have changed during the year. 

Schools can legally fundraise through fund raisers, which helps keep the school doors open and functional.
