The philosophy of the Mead School District is founded and based upon the principles identified in the district's foundational student learning goals. Included in this mission is the belief that human wellness and aesthetic experiences are integral parts of the educational experience. To serve that mission, the primary function of the interscholastic and intramural programs is to provide participatory opportunities for as many students as possible. These programs seek to enhance the psychological, emotional, social, and physical development of each student.

Activity Participation Fee Information
Mead School District takes great pride in all the extra-curricular activities and programs we provide for Mead students. During the past several years, with the increase in school funding problems, it has become increasingly difficult to offer the same level of quality programs as we have in the past.
After looking at a variety of cost saving measures, and comparing other school district participation costs, the Mead School District Board of Directors approved an annual, one-time activity fee. Any student, who wishes to participate in one or more extra-curricular activities, will pay an annual participation fee.
(Elementary $20; Middle School $30; High School $40).
The purpose of this annual fee is to allow Mead to continue our K-12 extra-curricular activities and programs. Mead students will be required to pay their fee prior to participation in sports and/or activities. The participation fee may be waived or reduced dependent upon a student’s free or reduced lunch status.
