FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) – The Frisco ISD is still trying to figure out how to deal with a $30 million budget shortfall.

One cost-saving move the district is considering is a pay-to-play fee. That means that student athletes would be charged a fee to participate in sports.

According to reports, that fee could be $100 for middle school athletes and up to $200 for high school students. Many parents oppose the pay-to-play fee saying a lot of students could be excluded because they couldn’t afford the cost.

The school board could vote on the proposal at the June 19th meeting.
