The Columbus Schools are not changing some fees for the next school year.  Superintendent Rich Bridenstine says they have a student fee and a nutrition fee that is charged to students.  He says the student fee is what the District will charge students for books.

Bridenstine says the last time these fees were raised was in 2002 and a proposal was recently given to the School Board to have those fees remain unchanged.  Bridenstine says the fees are approximately $60 per each elementary student and $65 for each junior high and high school student.
