Individual Student Accounts

Marching band and fall color guard students have an individual student account (ISA) set up to keep track of balances due and fundraising dollars accrued for these programs. The Band Parent Association has a volunteer ISA Treasurer who uses a software program to manage student accounts. 

Student Accounts: What They Cover & How to Pay

For various programs students participate in, there are costs families are responsible for above and beyond what the school district and the Band Parent Association is able to cover. The program cost students are responsible for will be communicated in advance to families, and amounts will be higher during big trip years. We offer convenient online payments plus cash and check options. 

Marching Band

Typically, fall program amounts are announced by April before the season. For fall 2024, the ISA amount is $750. Fall color guard amounts may be higher and will be communicated directly to students and families.

For the marching band 2024 Macy's trip, this amount is $1,710 with payments made from January through July 2024. See the Macy's student trip page for more details.

New in 2024: We have established monthly payment installments for January through November for the fall and Macy's amounts. See the 2024 Payment Schedule below for dates.

Winter Guard & Jazz Band

These amounts will be announced directly to participating students and families at the start of these seasons. Not all of our jazz band ensembles need supporting ISAs.

Getting Your Statement

In the past, we have used Charms to manage student account balances. That software is going away, so we will migrate to a new tool. Stay tuned for updates from the BPA. In the meantime, watch your email for monthly ISA statements. 

If you have questions, please contact our ISA Treasurer.
