Collection of school fees
Independent schools operate independently and receive grants from the respective federal state. The current subsidies from the State of Berlin cover around 60% of the costs of a school. The remaining costs are covered by tuition fees.The costs for meals are not included in the tuition fees.Costs for additional services are not included in the tuition fee. Costs for additional services can only arise after consultation with the contractual partners. Costs for additional services are, for example, costs for school trips, external workshops or external working groups with another provider.
In cases of social hardship, applications for a school fee reduction can be submitted to the school management in writing and with relevant income documents. The school management decides on the amount of the discount / reduction and notifies the applicant in writing of its decision on the amount of the discount / reduction and the approved period.
Tuition fee reductions can be granted at the earliest from the month in which the application is received by the school management. Tuition fee reduction cannot be backdated.
Tuition fee reductions apply for a maximum of one school year or until the end of the approved period.
A continuation of granting a reduction in tuition fees, a new application must be submitted to the school authority in good time - at least two months before the end of the approval period. If no new submissions are made, the agreed discount will no longer apply.
School fee reductions apply as long as the reasons for them exist. If the reason for the reduction is not communicated immediately, additional claims and additional reminder and processing fees must be expected.
The evidence provided will be kept for the duration of school attendance. The applications will be treated confidentially.
Insofar as no school fee reduction is granted due to the lack of prerequisites, there is the possibility of concluding a separate educational loan agreement
