Athletic fees will almost certainly go up again this year at Franklin High School, thanks to the tanking economy, said Franklin High School Athletic Director Brad Sidwell.

"I would expect an increase in the fees, for sure, but I don't know the amount yet," Sidwell said.

Assistant Superintendent Maureen Sabolinski, who becomes superintendent July 1, also said a fee increase is likely, but she hopes to avert it.

"Everyone's trying to get their heads around the stimulus money and how we can use it. We'd like to minimize fees if we can - fees are just another tax on parents," Sabolinski said.

The School Committee tried to generate more revenue by allowing paid advertisements in the high school field house, but that has only brought a few thousand dollars, Sidwell said.
