Sectiopn 5 Article IX of the State of California Constitution guarantees students a "free public education". The State Supreme Court concluded in the 1984 case of Hartzell v. Connell (35 Cal.3d.899(1984)), "that all educational activities carried on by public school distrcits, extra-curricular as well as curricular, must be without cost to the students who participate in such activities." This same ruling found that "mandatory fees for paticipating in such extra-curricular activities as drama, music, and athetics competition were illegal under the State Constitution." Futhermore, the also rejected the argument that students could be charged so long as the district aived fees for students who were financially unable to pay."
